SUP: WEEDS IN NYC WILL BE RELEASED ON APRIL 12, 2016!
Future Green Studio’s first book, Spontaneous Urban Plants: Weeds in New York City will be released on April 12th!
Spontaneous Urban Plants investigates the role of weeds in the urban ecosystem by profiling a cross section of weeds. The intent is to stimulate a discourse between ecologists, designers, artists, and the general public that explores societal perceptions of weeds and questions the stigmas that surround them. Leveraging principles of urban ecology and environmental aesthetics, we are encouraging an objective debate of the value of wild urban plants and thereby challenging contemporary cultural perceptions. This four-color art book has the potential to catalyze generation of emergent designers, artists, planners and thinkers to rethink our urban future in the face of increased density an erratic climatic conditions.
