URBAN ORGANIC GARDEN AT FAO
It consists of a mobile modular system with the function of an urban garden that have been installed in September 2021 on the terrace of the headquarters of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in Rome.
The elements have been conceived to cover the space in an organic and original way, and consist of two slightly different triangular typologies that come together along the edges. The configurations that can be obtained through this tessellation are very numerous.
The modules are characterized by a mobile structure covered in Cor-Ten steel and include perlite for drainage and water storage. In addition, geotextiles filters are positioned with needle-punched and thermostabilized polypropylene fibers without glues or chemical binders capable of distributing moisture evenly, filtering the fine particles of the substrates and creating anchoring between the roots.
