Public Farm One

This installation in P.S. 1 countryard (NY) serves as a music stage, leisure space and a vertical public farm. It grows - amongst others - peas, mint, rhubarb, and fennel. Cardboard tubes from concrete casting are used as planters while structural columns contain phone-charging stations and juice dispensers.

It is one of the 99 actions that investigate positive change in contemporary cities around the world, exhibited at the Canadian Centre for Architecture.

Public Farm One is a project by WORK Architecture Company.

I particularly like #54 and #63. Green graffiti! Seed bombs away!

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Ine Geevers: #YesNaturally was about co-evolution and partnership. How to become friends with o.a. bacteria, microbes and viruses. Because yes, they can be deadly and vital at the same time.
