Our next Dezeen x MINI Living video explores a modular farming system called GrowMore, which allows people living in cities to build and maintain mini farms made from a series of simple plywood planters.
Designed by danish firm Husum & Lindholm Architects, Growmore structures can be assembled using six plywood components. The system is designed for people living in cities to utilise unused urban space for local food production.
“Growmore is an urban gardening modular design that enhances our awareness on local production,” the architects said. “It consists of very few elements, which makes it possible to build in any given context.”
The components include planting and shelving units, which are connected by pivotal joints. This enables users to move and rotate assembled structures, so they can fit in a wide range of different spaces.
“It’s like a Lego system,” the architects said. “The parts can be rotated vertically and horizontally, so it’s totally flexible.”
