Most gardens are cultivated outdoors however this particular green patch is part of an indoor garden in which the plant-life hangs in bags from the ceiling. Visitors are asked to breathe into tubes that are connected to these plant baggies to keep the plants alive.

What’s more, this garden fiends for feedback from its visitors. Each hanging baggie contains algae that create oxygen, biomass and energy and they are all stamped with specific QR codes. One simply scans the code and follows up by tweeting about the algae’s growth to help build an online foundation of the greenhouse’s evolution. The idea is to be able to bring together energy, matter and digital information and renewable energy so that in the future, gardeners can can have a network to which they can turn to for green revolutions.
