The Platform Garden

Container Gardens
The Platform Garden is inspired by unused overground platforms in London, to create a platform garden of the future, with a focus on community-led gardening and education.
 
The garden focuses on key areas where more green infrastructure could be incorporated. It highlights the importance of planting in transportation areas to improve biodiversity, rainwater collection, carbon capture and enhance people's wellbeing.
 
The garden shows a section of a train platform, taking inspiration from the shapes and surfaces found in this type of public space, such as graphic retro tiles, recycled concrete litter bins as planters and recycled paving.
 
The hope for the garden is to encourage everyone to grow their own plants and produce, however small their spaces, and to reach out to their communities to share horticultural knowledge.
