Urban agriculture and gardening is gaining momentum day by day. People are realizing the importance of self-reliance, especially when it comes to food production. Danish architects Sine Lindholm and Mads-Ulrick Husum have created ‘GrowMore’ in an attempt to foster this partnership. GrowMore is a modular urban gardening design that expands as your plants grow.
The modular and open source system is made entirely of CNC milled plywood. This versatile garden can be screwed and unscrewed in a variety of configurations, allowing you to maintain custom gardens and gardens.
GrowMore is a collection of six individual pieces, including plywood, shelves and planters, held together by a “pivoting circular joint”, which uses M8 bolts to create varied designs from the same pieces.
It is like a Lego system. The pieces can be rotated vertically and horizontally, making it totally flexible. You can freestyle and build whatever you want.
Exhibited at the Seoul Architecture Biennale, an exhibition of designs created for the cities of the future, GrowMore was designed in such a way that the three-dimensional garden can be built by anyone in the comforts of their own home / city.
Anyone with a CNC machine can produce their own plywood parts and use them to create the structure that best suits their needs.
You can have it inside or outside, you can use it to divide spaces, or you can use it as a quick way to build a very airy and transparent space.
GrowMore aspires to be more than just a garden or a modular vegetable garden, it promises to be a place of refuge for anyone who is tired of the world and needs a breath of fresh air. An opportunity to connect with nature and grow your own vegetables. This is something I’m sure everyone would agree with, and I wouldn’t be surprised if I saw a couple of GrowMores in my own town!
