iF concept design award 2010

This body of work looks at the Guerrilla Gardening subculture. The members of this group secretly meet at night to elicit plant flowers, shrubs and vegetables in neglected urban spaces.

This project explores the existing instruments involved in this practice. These new objects function as components that combine to facilitate the individual processes in gardening.

Secretly dropping seed bombs on their way to work or planting flowers on their way home, these designs allow the guerrilla gardener to integrate their assaults into their every routine.
