Google Campus Houses Thirsty Plant Detectors

Monday 3rd February

Our friends at Wayward Plants designed and built the Living Technology Garden in the new Google Campus London, a unique co-working space in the heart of East London’s Tech City which supports tech start-ups.

A handmade moss wall wraps the courtyard, utilising an innovative rainwater collection system. The gaps in the walls are tagged with Moss Graffiti, a guerrilla gardening tactic. Woodland plantings of ferns and hellebores fill the concrete planters in this shady space. They asked us to contribute by placing our Thirsty Plant detectors around the garden, so of course we obliged, to create a Living Technology Garden that tells you when its Thirsty.

The Living Technology Garden will facilitate on going collaborations with start-ups that merge plants and technology.
