Read full project description Close project description

The reEarth project, founded at the Bartlett School of Architecture, explores plant behaviour in order to create new forms of interaction between people and nature. Although plants don’t usually move around by themselves, they can still be electro-chemically stimulated to do so. Their first project, Hortum Machina, B is essentially a garden inside a robotic, geodesic sphere that moves around the city, according to the needs of the plants. The project aims to explore further interaction with plants, and hopes to show city folk how vital plants are to our ecosystems.
