Crochet – a symbiotic relationship between technology and nature
The botanical garden is viewed as a part of a place placed in a new, foreign context. Taking inspiration from Narnia, entering an unexpected world through the wardrobes, each door and threshold takes the visitor into a new climatic environment.
In this project two typically opposing phenomena have been brought together to form a symbiotic relationship, where the servers give heat to the botanical garden and the botanical gardens provides protection for the servers.
The servers are located within the thick, impenetrable walls of the existing silos. Nature forms a protective layer around this as botanical wardrobes. A large green blanket covers the area.
