Food & Water 2030 is Argentine industrial designer Nicolás Chacana’s concept for the cultivation of hydroponic produce in a mobile farm, specifically, an urban vehicle that grows and delivers food and drinkable water.
I would like to know how energy efficient the concept is. The delivery of fresh food is a good thing for sure, but is this the most efficient way to do so?
The designer envisions the concept in a future scenario, say 2030, when he projects that pure water and food will be scarce due to contamination, global warming and biofuel production. But, wait: hasn’t that day arrived already in many locales?
