People’s Industrial Design Office has conceived the Bike Share Farm, a solar-powered planting system on wheels. Placed atop two interconnected bicycles, this hydroponic farm is cycled from place to place, bringing the experience of urban farming to a wider community. The frame of the Bike Share Farm allows for bicycles to be interchangeable. At each stop a new cyclist can attach his bike to the structure, replacing the existing bike.
People’s Industrial Design Office designed and built Bike Share Farm during a 72 hour hackathon in Seoul organized by Art Center Nabi. The project invites professionals to generate ideas on urban and ecological issues. Seoul is a massive vertical city with minimal garden space. Mobile farms can make shared urban farming possible in such a dense megacity.
