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?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
