THE GROWROOM: ARCHITECTURE TO FEED THE CITY
WE’VE been hitting a rich vein of green architecture lately – and The Growroom by Space10 in conjunction with architects Mads-Ulrik Husum and Sine Lindholm keeps the interface between built-form/veggie-patch coming.
Stacked with vegetables, herbs and edible plants and installed at the Chart Art Fair in Copenhagen and then later at Vice’s Munchies Festival in the same city space10’s temporary urban farm is an artistic take on what’s possible with urban farming.
“At Space10, we envision a future where we grow much more food inside our cities,” says Carla Camilla Hjort, Director of Space10. “Food producing architecture could enable us to do so.”
The art installation was designed, Hjort explains, in the hope visitors would “step inside the growing green haven, smell and taste the abundance of herbs and plants, and hopefully it will spark passion about growing your own food in the future.”
