Is Cyber-Gardening the New Urban Gardening?

"The project makes you think about farming and gardening, but there is another level where knowledge can be disseminated and exchanged, and it's a virtual cultivation of knowledge," Claudia Pasquero, who helped create the exhibit, told domus. "Media technologies and material systems come together." Pasquero's EcoLogicStudio used a similar experiment as part of research methods and to build public support for an algae-centric economic redevelopment plan in an economically stagnant region of Sweden. But whether or not the project is "useful," it provides a fascinating perspective on a future where biology, architecture, and urban agriculture all begin to unite.
