it is technically possible to make fields on rooftops but...
soil isn't natural so probably not all crops would like to grow there and it might not be a good food

General source of energy should also change before this comes true. Otherwise we would eat all the pollutions produced by the city. Very just way to take revenge on people producing pollution in cities but not a humanitarian way ; ]

Even if plants on roofs wont serve as food it is still a good thing to have them - it would produce oxygen, transpire (there would be more moisture in the air), dust with pollutions would stop on leaf surface and it would stop some water from rains longer and so on so on

all are advantages but it cost a lot so... a dream unfortunately.

It is a nice painting but to emphasize the details I would add some lines drawn with dip pen or a pan simply. Black or brown or blue (or all at once). The perspective could be made more clear then : ]

nice :D I saw that kind of proposal in discovery channel, where they will put the fields on top of the buildings in China if they finaly lacked city space and need to go to the farms
thats so beautiful! and such a great concept :D

:) Interesting concept. Can't be easy to do a landscape in watercolour with that much detail....Great job!
I can't believe you did this at the age of fourteen... What I'd give to be tutored under you now that you're twenty-one!

Oh, I mean I'd love to draw city since 14 years old but in this work I did it in 22 years old.

Very nice! Your architecture drawings are among my favorites among your art.

How did you practice those to be able to draw something like this?

I love to draw city since I'm 14 years old.
Because "Simcity 2000", I start with modern style.
next, I like arab+europe architecture then I draw in free time.
and draw more fantasy after "Lord of the rings"

I usually draw in free time. I don't think that it's a practice.
except during prepare to Architecture Faculty (my majot is Landscape Architecture)
in that time I practice about perspective.

I think inspiration is the most important thing to make me like to draw architectures (and plus landscape in this time).
After I see beautiful city I remember it and stock for use when I have time to create ideal city.

If draw many works, the skill is increase too, I believe this fact.
but variety style is important to improve skill too then I try to draw new thing as I want :)

Hope that my answer is answer that you want
(and sorry for my English again)
