Could solar-powered floating farms provide enough food for the entire world?

Smart floating farms, hydroponics, Forward thinking architecture, aquaculture, solar energy, modules, modular architecture, floating farms, solar powered farm, alternative farming, food security, The Smart Floating Farms (SFF) are designed as smart and fully automated systems that combine solar energy, hydroponics, and aquaculture. According to the architects, the commercially viable SFF project was envisioned with existing well-tested materials and technologies. The farms would be installed in nearby water bodies to reduce reliance on imported food and number of food miles traveled.

The shape of the rectangular SFF modules was inspired by the traditional grid configuration used in floating fish farms in Asia. Each lightweight module measures 200 meters by 350 meters and can be connected with other modules to form clusters with built-in walkways. While the focus will be on farming, the project can also include modules that cater to farming research or education.

The SFF module comprises three main levels: a ground level for aquaculture and desalination technologies; the first floor for hydroponic crop cultivation; and a rooftop level covered in solar panels, skylights, and rainwater collectors. By using stackable and modular systems, SFF are scalable, adaptable, and resource efficient. Each module is estimated to produce 8,152 tons of vegetables a year and 1,703 tons of fish a year.
