Cultural Roots by Gionata Gatto
by Jaime / December 23, 2009

Food is one of the most obvious signs of cultural identity, and many of today's crowded urban areas are home to people of diverse ethnicities who are a vibrant part of their community.


What better way to make use of limited space than to create tiny, urban gardens that are a reflection of their owners' backgrounds and needs?


Gionata Gatto uses a suitcase-shaped base to grow up to 36 different plants out of the sides and top.


These mobile, soil-filled suitcases are a symbol of the mixed bag of experiences brought to the community by its many members who can cultivate both their garden and their relationships.
