Seoul’s city government has an ambitious plan to turn parts of its subway stations into smart – and sterile – farms. The first of these vertical green spaces has been set up in Seoul’s Sangdo station, where eight types of vegetables are currently growing in floor-to-ceiling trays under pink neon lights in a 394 sq m glass facility. The space also features a children’s education zone and shop selling the vegetables. Two more farms are in the works and there is the potential for more resident-friendly collaborations in the future.
