Vertical Intersections is an itinerant public installation that consists of a series of vertical gardens with workshops that invite locals into shared public space to grow plants, share stories, and create community.
The vertical gardens represent local populations living in high-rise buildings. Each pocket planted with its own native or foreign species, symbolizing the individual urban dweller in their unit. Collectively they represent our vision of growing together as a diverse community, coexisting in symbiosis and supporting each other.
This installation nourishes opportunities for interaction and new friendships; grows awareness of local ecosystems and the importance of their protection and integration into urban landscapes; and educates the community to reclaim and create more green urban spaces.
After its successful launch in The Bentway’s Fall 2019 theme “Second Nature”, Vertical Intersections continues its mission to bring us closer to both “environmental nature” and our “social nature” through the exchanges of urban gardening.
POK¡ is the product born from Vertical Intersections and it is here to bring wellness to our lives!
POK¡ is a sustainable modular vertical garden, which allows the user to be part of its creation speaking the universal language of material folding and discovery. It can be used outdoors or indoors, in residential or commercial spaces, fitting any space. You can personalize it, pick a color, material and finish!
IDITA is looking for new opportunities to commercialize Vertical Intersections and POK¡ locally and internationally. Let’s discuss their multiple possibilities over a cup of tea!
