Creating Mobile Green Space In NYC
A public project aims to reconnect urban communities with nature in a practical and playful way.
Taking green roofs to a completely different level, interaction designer Marco Castro Cosio conceptualized Bus Roots, a public project that designs green roof systems for buses (We first covered the project when it was in the concept stage here.) Using green roofs and vertical gardens as inspirations, Bus Roots aims to increase green life in space-constrained cities by growing gardens on top of the thousands of buses traveling around cities. The first of these green roofs was installed on the roof of the BioBus that runs in and around New York City. Here’s what Cosio says about his project:
