The plant filled Forest Bus delights passengers in Taiwan. Local florist Alfie Lin and designer Xiao Qing-Yang converted the bus into a relaxing oasis with moss, flowers and ferns. The pleased passengers have hoped that the refreshing conversion could be permanent and it is easy to see why.
In Rotterdam we saw this fabulous Bobbing Forest installation by the Dutch artist Jorge Bakker. The installation consists of floating buoys that have live trees planted in them. In the winds and waves of the Rijnhaven bay, the trees bob and sway around beautifully. The Bobbing Forest creates an interesting, new type of forest close to a very concrete-jungle part of Rotterdam. Kudos for the people who have made this happen!
