Urban Air is Blowing Up
Last week was a big week for Urban Air, being published in The Architect’s Newspaper, SHFT, co.exist, and the Huffington Post– twice. I had the pleasure of helping Stephen Glassman with some of the images on this project, and it’s really amazing to see how much momentum it has gained.
The idea of the project is to turn billboards into greenboards- armatures for vegetation within a typically barren urban condition. The first one, set to be installed in Los Angeles, will replace advertising with bamboo, water, and wifi that provides information on the project and the climate. It’s a great idea, and half way through their kickstarter campaign, they’ve raised over $30,000.
