Milan 2015: Metropolitan protoGARDEN. The concept of garden evolves from green area to a prototype for the development of a new metropolitan lifestyle; the garden stops being purely organic and becomes a synthetic hybrid, embedded with electronics, remote control, performance e computational power. The new proto-gardener can then nourish the metropolitan environment with its daily actions: directly and remotely, materially and digitally, through sensors or servomotors. The proto-garden evolves in a per-formative network that feeds and is fed back by the cultural and social evolution of the metropolis.
