A4A_whynotinthegarden_04
Why not in the garden? is a short-term, mobile and changeable, accessible and versatile pop-up. It is a public garden on wheels and, started from dawn on Monday 13th April, with a stage performance, plants and flowers were added throughout the morning.

The Why not in the garden? design.
What makes this installation different is green on wheels, a module in two versions. The vertical element is a light iron structure painted in bright colours with wooden benches and espaliers for the pots of plants, while the horizontal element is a an iron platform-flower bed. The modules are all mounted on bicycle tires painted the same colours as the structure which holds aromatic, garden and flowering plants. The artwork on the flooring traces the different layouts of Why not in the garden? during the time it will be at the Expo Gate, showing what will be happening there. A 40-metre-long cardboard table will run the length of the square for the late-night spaghetti party on Thursday 16 April.
