The Plans: The Growroom – a spherical garden that enables people to grow their own food locally within our cities and in a beautiful and sustainable manner
The Growroom is designed by:
Sine Lindholm, Mads-Ulrik Husum & SPACE10
The design received a lot of attention from all over the world, which is why we today release the design/cutting files and simple instructions, so people around the world can build their very own Growroom inside their own neighbourhoods.
We already know that the open source design files will be used to build The Growroom in Helsinki, Taipei, Rio de Janeiro and San Francisco, but this is just the beginning, because we hope to see The Growroom pop up in cities across the world.
