The Green Cocoon


& collaboration with Architecture of Cure

The Anxious City Festival 2018 was a three-day festival in Rotterdam that explored the question of stress in the city through the lens of architecture, design, science and art.

The Anxious City


The Green Cocoon

The aim of this pop-up intervention, called The Green Cocoon, was to introduce a micro therapeutic garden to a specific park in Rotterdam. It was created for social interaction and a connection with nature in the city.

User Experience

The playful aspect of the signs in the midst of the plants invited people to interact with them and also helped start a dialogue with others.

The Green Cocoon had specific plants that targeted the senses; ones were meant for touch, others for smell, and others could be put in teas or simply eaten raw.
