Haworth Tompkins Architecture Dezeen Growmore is a modular Construction kit for urban gardeners

Planting boxes could be bolted together to create miniature farms and gardens, with this very simple building system invented by Danish architects Sine Lindholm and Mads-Ulrik Husum.

The duo, who conduct a studio named Husum & Lindholm Architects, wish to make it simple for anybody to build their very own three-dimensional garden — thus developed a modular construction kit which may be constructed in endless distinct configurations.

They intend to produce the plan open minded, so anybody using a CNC machine may create the plywood parts, then use them to make the plant-covered structure which best suits their requirements.

“As architects, we have to address new technologies,” said Lindholm. “We have to think about how can we build and produce designs that people can grasp, and that they can build themselves.”

The architects are introducing their own layouts in the inaugural Seoul Architecture Biennale, an exhibition which showcases ideas and plans for the towns of the future.

The machine consists of six components, including fixings, shelves and a planting box.

“It’s like a Lego system,” Lindholm informed Dezeen. “The parts can be rotated vertically and horizontally, so it’s totally flexible. You can really freestyle, and build anything you want.”

Lindholm and Husum first beginning developing the layout from 2016, in cooperation with IKEA’s invention laboratory Space10. Together, they created Growroom, a round backyard layout They introduced in the CHART Art Fair at Copenhagen and also the IKEA Festival at Milan.

Led them to create a system. They predict the layout Growmore.

“You can have it indoors or outdoors, you can use it for dividing spaces, or you can use it as a quick way of building up a very airy and transparent space,” said Lindholm.

Lindholm and Husum have utilized the system to make three distinct structures, that are dotted across the Donuimen Museum Village — among the two venues of the biennale.

The first is the “urban room”, which can be full of flowers that attract bees. There’s also a structure that include plants that are bushy, plus structure planted with vegetables and herbs, which functions the restaurant.

All three constructions are based on forms. The architects expect they will create areas of market, but could become areas for sanctuary for visitors.

Seoul Architecture Biennale 2017 opened this weekend and continues until 5 November 2017. The strategies for Growmore is going to be made accessible to the public following the exhibition is finished.
