Media Garden Jardin Media
Green space meets the virtual age with the “Media Garden.” This new concept coalesces advertising and nature to entice the weary traveler to have a stop and smell the roses, and while you are at it, to check out the advertisement on the screen. These nifty devices are popping up in airports and malls and who knows, maybe eventually at your nearest CTA stop. The Chicago based company, Sage Vertical Garden Systems, is like the name suggests, a company that specializes in vertical gardens. I think this is an interesting take on an age-old practice. It is a blending of multiple facets, horticulture, design, technology, advertising, etc. into one unique concept. Knowing that these are located in Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, I will be more aware the next time I am walking through the terminal to spot one and have a stop to smell the roses if you will.
