‘ten yards of futopia’ by michael bernstein ten yard forest sculpture center, long island city, NY

new york born designer michael bernstein has developed a plan for a series of small gardens, and forests to be placed in recycled refuse dumpsters. his project ‘ten yards’ refers to the payload capacity of each dumpster. once constructed, these gardens can be installed with relative ease in any urban location; just as easily, they can be picked up by truck and moved to a new location. these units of greenery can be dispatched to neighborhoods in need of green spaces, each consisting of two rows of regionally grown pine trees.
