Haute GREEN is proof perhaps that the haute-grass is often greener, particularly during New York Design Week. This curated three day exhibit (with a suggested entrance donation) features original recycled/recyclable/renewable home design objects by seventy designers from around the world. The 'Log Bowl' by Loyal Loot definitely turned me into a green-eyed monster!
EDIBLE ESTATES is still looking for a front lawn and family in suburban New York City. They will remove the lawn and replace it with an edible landscape responsive to the local climate and context. All labor and materials will be donated.
Prototype garden guidelines here. Sounds like a great deal!
The Cooper Hewitt Museum just unveiled its DIY, it's-time-for-solutions exhibit, Design for the Other 90%, installed in a mini-village of sorts on the museum's grounds and gardens. Design for the Other 90% explores a growing movement among designers to design low-cost solutions for this “other 90%.” Don't miss the Katrina Furniture Project, the Big-Boda Bicycle, the Mad Housers Hut, or the the Sierra Portable Light Project.
