Throughout 2020. the pandemic state made evident the general lack of quality of the architectural standards in highly populated areas. One of the forms in which this is manifested is in the fact that constructions have been turning their back to nature. In such context, nature is commonly regarded either as a luxurious accessory attribute or a common ground that not everybody would appreciate or look after.

The proposal pretends to create awareness of the importance of daily and domestic contact with other forms of life through the installation of a mechanical device that can bring, vertically and temporarily, a tree, a vegetable garden, or a beehive to our window. Furthermore, the vertical construction might trigger a series of unexpected shared relationships since it can serve as a traveling communitarian space that can engage the neighbours.
