The greenhouse makes a comeback in some surprising places.
An architectually elegant garden shed/greenhouse (above); Urbanized, by Gary Hustwit (whose earlier films include Helvetica and Objectified), opens this weekend; a Google Earth view of well-known gardens, including the High Line, Kensington Gardens, and Koganei Park; and answers to all the mushroom questions you wanted to ask in this week's Links We Love.
A temporary house made from a pipe frame and vegetable crates had living walls and a living roof covered with fresh vegetables that could be directly harvested from this "greenhouse."
For three days during the gray month of November, Parisians were surprised with pop-up bubbles—greenhouses filled with hanging plants, seemingly appearing about of nowhere. Actually, these bubbles were the project of the Flower Council of Holland, and were designed by French designer Amaury Gallon, who is well known for his vertical gardens. Named Ma bulle, ma plante et moi (or My Bubble, My Plant and Me), the project was inspired by Andy Warhol's prophecy that everyone would have 15 minutes of fame.
