Belgian architect Vincent Callebaut's Asian Cairns project proposes a new look for China's urban environments, offering an eco-friendly alternative known as farmscrapers (in lieu of skyscrapers). With China's urbanized population growing, leaving fewer and fewer countryside inhabitants, there is an inevitable increase in energy consumption and, thus, an environmental concern. Callebaut's project seeks to restructure the city of Shenzhen by placing his innovative vertical farming towers as a positive response to the impending environmental issues.
