Vertically Integrated Greenhouse Brooklyn-based Kiss + Cathcart has designed a vertical-growth system that integrates hydroponic food production into a multistory, double-skin facade. Plants are grown on trays suspended on cables, with planting and harvesting taking place at the bottom level. The angle of the growing trays can be altered in the manner of venetian blinds to provide shading for occupants. Image courtesy Kiss + Cathcart
