'Bus Roots' shows that almost anything and everything can be turned into a garden. Artist Marco Castro Cosio appeared to be aiming towards this concept when creating this piece.
The idea has already earned no small amount of recognition from the design world, as 'Bus Roots' recently netted a second runner-up nod in the DesignWala Grand Idea Competition. Based on Cosio's thesis at NYU, 'Bus Roots' could potentially change the face of our planet. "If we grew a garden on the roof of every one of the 4,500 buses in the MTA bus fleet," says Cosio, "we would have 35 acres of new rolling green space in the city."
