Growing Bamboo



Logo Needlab project photo

Vietnam; Ho Chi Minh city, density has increased so much that there is about two square meters green space available per person, whereas, it's supposed to be 9 square meters per person. Theirs is a lack of green space per capita, with our public space proposal we are increasing the green space per person. The structure is called growing bamboo; it’s a vertical garden for the typical tube houses of Vietnam which can grow food for the community. The idea is that the people who built it can have their complete meal from their vertical rooftop garden, the spinach for their pho (traditional Vietnamese dish), the pumpkins all of it grows in the structure. It’s made of material from Vietnam; built for the community, by the community.

Needlab work towards creating what’s needed for the community; of the people, by the people, for the people.
