Maybe I should talk about a contemporary worry that affects all artists in these days. Manifest a way of reaction, the fear of losing the green areas around the earth and a “pay attention” for everybody to have the conscious of this actual concern calling global warming. Sometimes more artistic interventions, sometimes really trying to fix the human problem called selfish. We’re talking about URBAN TEMPORAL GARDENS. Yes, because (today I feel “more green” than other days) I’d really like found with this surprises on the streets. There´re so many projects but I share the most well-done for me.
Sean Martindale & Eric Cheung, some like guerrilla gardening taking advantage of urban holes to plant some green. Interesting photos here.
This is “Urban buds” of Gionata Gatto, a portable garden shaped in the form of a movable suitcase. Users can grow vegetables and fruits on each side of the structure.
The Crack Garden, by CMG Landscape Architecture is beautiful, almost poetry.
This is a design by Vaughn Bell. He has a lot projects about gardens but I choose this outfit for the unique idea of carry on your own garden.
And the Dutch Annechien Meier that incorporates the idea of mobility and even more subversive transforming a plane or a bus into a garden.
And my favorite temporal garden, is the Public Farm 1 is a project designed by WORK Architecture Company for MoMA and P.S.1's Young Architects Program on New York.
