So much is happening with vertical farming. Luckily, you know to tune in right here to find it all out. Check out developments at the World’s Fair, new LED systems, and more.
Expo Milano is a makeshift city studded with spectacular pavilions. In an attempt to outshine each other at the world fair, which opens today, 143 countries brought in their A-list teams of architects, innovators and culinary experts to design their temporary buildings. The UK built a beehive structure that’s straight out of a sci-fi movie. China has an elaborate floating roof. Italy used air-purifying cement for its palazzo. And while theUS pavilion isn’t an architectural extravaganza, it’s a didactic display with a giant automated vertical farm that’s the first of its kind and size.

Tomorrow, the latest iteration of the world exposition — that strange and exotic hybrid of a state fair, Epcot and an irregular Olympic Games, minus the athletics but not necessarily the corruption — will commence in Milan, Italy, where it will run for a six-month “semester” before wrapping up on Oct. 31.
