西雅圖的建築設計公司 Olson Kundig 在他們的工作室設置了一個小型蘑菇養殖場裝置。咖啡文化正在城市裡急速發展，而工作室的蘑菇正好是利用咖啡殘渣來培殖。這個農場裝置是一個都市家居種植的實驗畫廊，它將蘑菇栽種與都市家居種植的趨勢完美地結合起來。
The architects of Olson Kundig have built a small mushroom farm in the storefront of their studio in Seattle. Mushrooms are growing on the left-overs of the cities thriving coffee culture. Olson Kundig’s installation is meant to be a home growing gallery for urban experimentation, as Unconsumption explains. It connects the beauty of the mushroom cultivation with the urban home growing trend.
The Mushroom Farm project reacts on the coffee culture that explodes in Seattle and in almost every other city in the world. Coffee waste is very nutrient-rich and forms the perfect fertilizer for this indoor mushroom farm. The center of the micro farm consists of an impressive mushroom-growing tent constructed out of salvaged plywood and plastic.
蘑菇養殖正成為一個新的城市熱話，於家居耕種農趨勢中佔了相當重要的位置。阿姆斯特丹的當代藝術機構Mediamatic 曾經主辦了一個關於約蘑菇和它們的成長過程的有趣展覽，人們被邀請到會場養殖他們的香菇。但蘑菇在城市的功用才不止於此。在TED的講座裡，真菌學家 Paul Stamets 解釋了為什麼蘑菇能拯救世界。如欲了解更多，請按此 。
Mushroom farming is becoming a new urban hype as part of a wider home farming trend. The Amsterdam-based contemporary art institute Mediamatic has hosted an interesting exhibition about mushrooms and their growing process. People were invited to cultivate their own shiitake mushrooms during the expo. But mushrooms can do more to the city. In his TED talk, mycologist and author Paul Stamets explains why mushrooms can save the world. Click here to check it out.
