Gardening on the Roof of a Bus

In the streets of Girona, a sunny town near Barcelona, you can find an eco-friendly bus with a garden on the roof. It’s not an artistic work, but an experiment to expand the urban green area, in order to reduce CO2. Called Autocultural, it’s a classic bus with a thin layer of hydroponic components on the top, allowing the plants to grow without overloading to the vehicle's structure with the weight of the soil. Public transporters drivers can now add green thumb to their CV.

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.
