    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    andrey ADAMOVICH & johan GLOCK: We were thinking how to recreate an office atmosphere—how to make it alive and attractive.

    The core consists of four different pods and a wiring system. Together they create a system to build up walls. That at a start will be a forest that to a certain extent consisting of a vertical linework. And with a shoal of pods swimming through it at various densities. As time passes by most of the pods will start to have greenery growing out of them. And will eventually start to climb along the wiring creating a green zone within the linework.

    Due to the repeating wiring and the suspended pods a physical barrier is created. It also works as a visual barrier to a certain extent
    depending on the distance and angle between the observer and the pods as well as the wires. This is temporary and over time the very open wiring will become denser and denser as it gradually gets overtaken by the plants. This will eventually create enclosed spaces both physically as well as visually.

    The Hydroponic pods will all be the starting point for the plants within the system. They are fitted with various kinds of epiphytes. And will start to integrate with the wiring structure holding the pods. And in time covering the wiring system in the cases where they are receiving enough nutrients and water or simply where they have the capacity to stretch and reach to new support for their climbing existence. In this case various ivies and vines met the requirements.
