The Plantagon wants to put farming in the cities via the amazing Plantagon dome farm. With most people now living in cities, it makes sense to grow food locally in cities and not transport it. While I applaud the visionary scale of such a project, I’m always a little skeptical of massive city architecture, especially when it’s just plopped down and clearly is aimed at wealthier people only.
Would it be nice to go to a farmer’s market inside the Plantagon? Absolutely. But I’m guessing the produce would be organic and expensive. Thus it really would just benefit those with higher incomes. Too much architecture in big cities seems designed for precisely that. The poor aren’t wanted or welcome.
