Plantagon Breaks Ground On Their First Vertical Farm @LloydAlter compares it to a three-handled shovel.
Plantagon vertical farm in a dome was pretty much vaporware, that a dome made little sense, and I was, like many others, tired of all of these architectural fantasies. Since then, some small test facilities have actually been built, and some serious academic work has been done to give the concept some substance. Now, they are actually breaking ground on one, using a very silly three handled shovel that is an interesting analogy to the vertical farm: yes, you can make one, but why would you, and does it work any better than the traditional technology?
