Genius in a bottle
This genius hanging garden in the form of old plastic bottles, strung together and planted with flowers, spices and medicinal herbs, was designed by Brazilian design studio Rosenbaum. The vertical garden was part of TV show Caldeirao do Huck which help boost the quality of life of poor families.
The PET bottle wall was part of a drastic home makeover project for a family in the outskirts of Sao Paulo. The response to this hack was massive, so the team @ Rosenbaum decided to feature a D.I.Y manual in their site – which I feature below:
