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?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
