Herbs Move Office Workers Outside

#88. Herbs Move Office Workers Outside


A kitchen garden planted in a simple wood structure on Copenhagen’s office park harbour front. A Kitchen Garden at the Harbour Front confronts office workers with a herb garden and its associations with the private home; passersby find a public garden in an area of private enterprise. The garden structure is designed as a temporary installation; the planters also function as benches, creating a zone of interaction and communication in what is otherwise a transport corridor. Jesper Dyrehauge, Marie Markman, and Nis Rømer have worked on socially oriented projects with public space since 2003.
