Inspired: Floating Garden
September 20, 2012 § Leave a comment
A barge is now transformed into a floating urban oasis. Not just any garden though…a foreign garden. You see… Gitta Gshwendtner and Maria Thereza Alves (the pair responsible for Seeds of Change) discovered that the bed of the Bristol river was full of foreign seeds from days gone by. Ships returning from all over the world would fill their hulls with soil upon their departure and once arriving in Britain would release the soil into the river bed to lighten their load. Soil, that even today, contain seeds from destinations beyond.
Re-adaptation. Re-imagined. Re-hashed.
