This Vegetable Nursery house is the result of cooperation between the International Architecture company 1 +1> 2 and Action for the City. This construction is included in the cooperation project between the governments of Vietnam and Ireland to support citizens to implement sustainable habits.
Besides being a home-nursery for vegetable garden, with an area of 6 sqm and 3.6 metres height, the house is also a place for farmers to rest and for children to visit and learn; a nice space that hosts a unique, curious and friendly shape.
The house is made of bamboo and approximately of 2,000 recycled plastic bottles made by students and the local community. The face of plastic bottles helps to adjust the natural lighting and temperature for vegetables. A water inlet on the roof, helps irrigation. The Vegetable Nursery house is easy to move, so it has to meet the growing demand due to its lightness. The nursery is the image of the combination between rural residents and urban residents, cooperation between Vietnam and Ireland to promote sustainable living habits.
The house was exhibited at the Museum of Women, from November 21 to December 24 2013, and has now been transported to Soc Son for organic vegetable gardening.
