Welcome to Chris M. Jacobs Vertical Farm Blog. I’ll be updating this site with more images, links, posts, and essays on this topic. You can find more information about Dr. Dickson Despommier’s Vertical Farm website here. You can also find an article written for New York Magazine here.
Chris Jacobs has been working with Dr. Despommier for almost 3 years now and created the first widely published design for the Vertical Farm. These designs have helped to elevate the concept to amazing heights. The most published Vertical Farm design can be seen below:
Windspire inspired by associate professor of mechanical engineering, Majid Rashidi.
A new (iterated) design (below) modeled and rendered by Dean Fowler of Machine Films. Dean modeled and rendered the first Vertical Farm design and Chris and Dean both received design guidance from Rolf Mohr.
