GREENPATHS / Moss installation


This project arose from a series of interviews regarding the public transport in Madrid. Here a significant number of participants voiced their discomfort surrounding the different areas and how they found the underground and train stations to be depressing and exhausting places.

This project aims to bring life into these areas while simultaneously doing the environment some good.

GreenPaths is an initiative based on the idea of growing moss in train, light trail, and even the underground stations with the goal to improve user experience, health, and contribute to a greener, cleaner and more sustainable city.
