The vegetable garden for Lanificio Pietralata is designed with minimum cost and maximum flexibility. Following Lanificio 159's philosophy of re-use and recycling, we used only materials that can be easily found also as second-hand material: pallets and sheets jute. We have created a carpet of pallets to delimits the area of the garden from the general plan of the terrace, using 298 pallets dimension 1m x 1.2 m (standard) to cover the entire area available. Starting from the complete closure, designed for winter, we can then open the areas necessary for the cultivation and stacking the pallets one above the other so as to create green columns, and optimizing the surface -increasing the number of products available. We can expand the garden in the same grid by adding one or more modules are easy to find (maximum modularity). The project was designed to interact with the whole system of Lanificio 159, leaving the possibility to installations by artists living next to the pavilion. We invite all occupants of Lanificio 159 to contribute with ideas and playing with pallet or materials for re-use to customize the mode of cultivation of this hortus. A removable house has been thought to protect the working materials, measuring 4.8 m by 4.4 m, serve 186 pallets. The pavilion will need this simple pine beams to support the roof (in pallets).
