120 Landscape Architect and Specifier News I n f o r m a t i o n R e q u e s t # 5 5 0 I n f o r m a t i o n R e q u e s t # 6 1 7 Up for a do it yourself project? IKEA just released plans for a spherical multi- level garden called the Growroom ( ). It's being touted as a kind of vertical farm, but of course you could grow whatever you desire. Talk about a wood shop project! The only materials required are 17 sheets of plywood and 500 stainless pan head screws. You'll need access to a Computer Numeric Control machine with a cutter 8mm in diameter, plus a table saw, a screwdriver, a drill and a couple of hammers. There are rumors that people in such disparate locals as Helsinki, Taipei, Rio de Janeiro and San Francisco have plans to build Growrooms. Get working. Right: You'll need 17 sheets of plywood.

The design is from SPACE10 and architects Mads-Ulrik Husum and Sine Lindholm. The building instructions are at znkf76u . Left: Assembled! Build Your Very Own Vertical Garden—Very Cool
