Archifringe competition entry collaboration with Loader Monteith Architects, illustration by Freya Bruce, model by Robb Mcrae. 'Our future lives' speculates on a future where retirement is a luxury for the few, not the many. Gardening, a symbol of post retirement activity, is confined to a productive growing factory 'Garden Plant'. An intensively managed vertical garden. Fruit and vegetables are tended and harvested by the elderly worker are delivered by drones to the populous.
Garden Plant is set within a landscape setting of flowering meadows, and pollen bearing trees, birch and Scots pine.
