Vertical Intersections & POK¡

After the successful launch in The Bentway, DesignTO Festival, recognized with the DesignTO People’s Choice: Community Wellbeing Award and the invitation from the vibrant and unique Isola Design District to participate in the Milan Design Week and the progressive Milan Design Market to launch my product POK¡. Also the special invitation to the next Pulp Art Party & Card Yard event. Vertical Intersections & POK¡ continues its mission to bring us closer to the environmental nature and our human nature, through the exchanges of urban gardening and creativity.

Vertical Intersections & POK¡ is an itinerant public installation that consists of a series of vertical gardens with workshops that invite people of all ages into shared public space to grow plants, share stories, and create community. POK¡ is a sustainable modular vertical garden product, born from Vertical Intersections, which allows the user(s) to be part of its creation and evolution, speaking the universal language of material folding and discovery, it offers simultaneously the wellbeing from creativity and gardening. It is suitable for indoors and outdoors residential or commercial spaces!

Vertical Intersections & POK¡ installation nourishes opportunities for interaction and new friendships; grows awareness of local ecosystems and the importance of their protection and integration into urban landscapes; educates the community to reclaim and create more green urban spaces; and promotes the appropriation and protection of the public realm.

Program

Vertical Intersections community garden represents local populations living in high-rise buildings. The garden consists of a series of pockets, each 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.

Participants can help co-create this vertical community garden and become a part of the Vertical Intersections community by crafting a personalized plant pocket and “adopting” a plant. Everybody is invited to gather for social gardening through the Vertical Intersections installation, this is an ongoing opportunity to water the garden plants, share gardening resources, meet neighbours and make new friends, all while enjoying complimentary herbal teas and nature-inspired music.  🌿😃😄🍵🎶

IDITA is looking for new opportunities to share Vertical Intersections with other communities located anywhere in the world. It can be part of an event, festival, display, gallery, museum, store, cafe, center, park, school, workplace, etc…It can be done outdoors as well as indoors all year round, using different customized possibilities. Let’s discuss it over a cup of tea! 🙂

Follow the Creative Process! 💚
