Living Room European Design

A plant-covered Mobile Green Living Room is delivering a gorgeous breath of fresh air to select European cities. Draped in lush greenery and outfitted with seating, the Mobile Green Living Room helps connect citizens to green infrastructure and creates a comfortable social space that combats the urban heat island effect and air pollution. TURAS (Transitioning towards Urban Resilience and Sustainability), HELIX Pflanzen GmbH, and the University of Stuttgart created the modular exhibition, which first popped up in Ludwigsburg, Germany and is now traveling across Europe.

The Mobile Green Living Room is constructed from living wall modules (WABA-system) attached to an Abroll-Container platform. A wide variety of plants are grown on the wire-cube modules to show off the versatility and beauty of living walls. These freestanding 3D living walls provide shade, create a cooling microclimate, and help purify the air. Each semi-autonomous Mobile Green Living Room can be easily transported via truck and is equipped with an onboard water tank with a weeklong capacity and irrigation system.

“Green Living Rooms are an example of how one of the green comfort zone solutions can be realised in high-density urban areas on heavily sealed surfaces where competition for usable space is at a premium,” says TURAS. “The Green Living Room represents an example of a new hybrid type of project. Rather than tackling climate change on a city-wide strategic level, they provide oases for communities at the heart of the most in-need areas.” The Mobile Green Living Room is currently touring Europe and is headed to Frankfurt after a brief stint in London.
