There is a massive problem threatening mankind’s future: The Earth’s population continues to grow at an unprecedented rate, and our food supply is simply not keeping pace. The total number of people on the planet is expected to reach 8.3 billion by 2030, and by 2050, demand for food will likely have increased by 70 percent. There is clearly a need for innovative ideas to meet this challenge, and a company called Forward Thinking Architecture has risen to the occasion.

The concept has already become popular on a smaller scale in the form of vertical hydroponic farms, but the Smart Floating Farm takes the idea to a whole new level.

Forward Thinking Architecture describes floating farms as “a new initiative which can be complementary [sic] and compatible with other existing production methods in order to help reduce food risk associated problems in different areas of the globe.” (RELATED: With the population boom outpacing the growth of our global food supply, it is important to be self-reliant.
