    Green + Urban street garden lifestyle

    Green+ is done in collaboration and consultation with the Council on the Environment of NYC (CENYC).

    Green+ addresses the desire to have mini-garden and parks along a city street, while aiming to protect trees from traffic and reduce the carbon footprint of urban furniture.

    Green+ uses a combination of plant material such as soil and grass and more traditional furniture construction to create a hybrid and composite product that allows users to comfortably experience a green urban environment.

    Green+ is not only to raise awareness about Global Warming through better production processes but also to be able to use furniture as a medium to show the comfort of natural surfaces.

    My concept is not only to raise awareness about global warming through better production processes but also to be able to use furniture as a medium to show the comfort of greens.

    My target audience is urban inhabitants and especially people who live in NYC. There are various parks and squares around NYC. However, they are not enough for the population for the city. More than 8 million people live in NYC, but there are only 1,700 parks. Different studies have proven that vegetation has therapeutic qualities to help individuals cope with stress. Some people grow small gardens in their backyard, on the balconies or even as an ornament in their living rooms. My idea is to design a ‘green bench’ built in beside, or around trees sidewalk. This ‘green bench’ solves one’s desires to grow greens in front of their house, but also people sit enjoy ‘green’ as they sit on the park.
