    Vertical farming is pretty nice, but if you really want to maximize on sunlight capture, your future structures would more resemble heat sinks, particularly the pin fin design. This is to prevent light from bouncing off to the side and escaping into empty space.

    The Earth itself is one solid mass, with a small portion of its volume exposed to sunlight. Not ideal for capturing light. Some time in a further future, it'd be much more hollowed out, wider, resembling a dense wireframe or tumbleweed from afar.?
