This imagined project for a residential house in north London, inspired by the legendary Hanging Gardens of Babylon, features a quilt of grow-bags stitched together to unroll over the roof. The grow-bags support a living surface made up of bunny-tail grass. The organic decoration allows the image of the house from the street to constantly change with the seasons.
