THE MOBILE GARDEN

Added on by Christina Cho.

Perhaps the most accessible way into understanding a culture is through its food, so I conceived of this garden in hopes to educate a community about the diversity of people in the world via the production of ethnic fruits and vegetables. The mobile garden is modular & reconfigurable to aggregate into different forms, to respond to plants specific solar exposure needs, and to create various seating & storage arrangements. Each half-hex module is split into 3 triangles, used in a variety of ways. Children from the neighborhood participated in the sowing of the Korean vegetable seeds and helped take care of them throughout the summer. The harvest season culminated in the making of a meal with the fruits of the garden's labor.
