More Green Skyscrapers

Back in November I linked to an article about using skyscrapers for farming.

Recently another article described how families that live in skyscrapers have a lower carbon footprint, since their homes share walls with other heated homes.

Isaac Asimov imagined a future in which everyone on Earth lived underground so that the entire planet's land could be used for agriculture. Orson Scott Card imagined a future in which a planet's entire surface was one steel building--the planet had to import all of its food. Did any science fiction writer imagine skyscrapers used for both farming and living?
