Billboards Converted into Bamboo Gardens

Check out the Urban Air project, the take existing urban advertisings billboards and transform them into bamboo gardens. Each installation includes living bamboo, water misters, and WI-FI enabled environmental sensors to monitor the air quality.
Stephen Glassman, the project’s creator, says “my intention is to put a crack in the urban skyline so that when people are compressed, squeezed, stuck in traffic, and they look up, and they see an open space of fresh air that allows them to take a breath, feel themselves as humans, and conceive of what might be.”
