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!

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Joyce Nabuurs: To me this question seems to be a logical next step in the emancipation movement of the past century. More and more women entered the workspace, but the responsibility for pregnancy and childrearing remained female.
