SPACE10 plants spherical, inhabitable 'growroom' in copenhagen

SPACE10, a future-living lab and exhibition space, has collaborated with architects mads-ulrik husum and sine lindholm on ‘the growroom’. the urban farm and multi-sensory pavilion aims to generate a discourse about how we can bring nature back into our cities. exhibited at chart art fair in copenhagen, the architectural installation investigates the ways in which urban areas can feed themselves through food-producing structures, in turn tackling the ever-increasing demand for food.

lined with herbs, vegetables, and edible plants for visitors to smell, taste and enjoy, ‘the growroom’ is an artistic exploration of the potential of urban farming. SPACE10, together with architects mads-ulrik husum and sine lindholm, imagines a future where our cities become self-sustaining, supplying urban inhabitants with fresh, high quality food throughout the year. ‘we envision a future where we grow much more food inside our cities,‘ says carla cammilla hjort, director of SPACE10. ‘food producing architecture could enable us to do so.’

at chart art fair, visitors were invited to step inside ‘the growroom’, experience the multitude of herbs and plants, and envision a future where food is produced in a sustainable manner. the spherical shape of the pavilion is divided into slices, which support the life and growth of plants by giving them access to sunlight. the installation in turn functions as both a growth-activator, and a shelter for visitors. ‘we’re inviting you to step inside the growing green haven, smell and taste the abundance of herbs and plants, and hopefully it will spark passion about growing your own food in the future,’ hjort continues.
