Public Farm One by Work Architecture Company is an urban farming project, shown outside the P.S.1 Contemporary Art Centre in New York last month.(in 2008)
The temporary installation is an attempt to bring the qualities of the countryside into the city, by growing fruit and vegetables in large cardboard tubes above a communal area. Public Farm 1 (PF1) is an architectural and urban manifesto to engage play and reinvent our cities, and our world, once more.
This project is relevant to my work because it's an engaging space, where people can take part in the activity it offers. Even though I do not offer a solution in my work, but raise attention, I want to work along similar lines and make something involving in the city which would be easily noticeable and inviting.
