Urbanature’s folding garden planter and stand takes urban gardening to new heights. I’m always on the hunt for small space garden products that an urban gardener can easily store out of place when not in use, then unfolds to fit the particular space.
Vertical Garden That Folds For Storage
Jörg Brachmann’s design not only makes it easy to grow vegetables in a confined space like a balcony, but at the end of the season, it just folds together flat for easy storage.
No More Fear of Heights
Inspired by one of those scissoring foldable laundry dryers, the height varies according to whim, depending on how much you unfold it and your particular space constraints. It’s lightweight solid wood (oak, walnut, ash) frame accepts up to six galvanized steel, white powder coated planter boxes.
Now, get planting and watch your garden unfold.
The New York subway has fascinated street photographers for generations, never more so than in the 1970s and 1980s. Gritty and tinged with danger, a subway ride was always an exercise in caution. In fact, in 1979, 250 serious crimes a week were reported on the NYC subway.
It’s within this context that we view the work of Swiss photographer Willy Spiller, who was living in New York and documented the subway system for seven years starting from 1977. Traversing the city with the curious eye of an outsider, his photos tell the story of the graffiti filled New York subway.

just over a year ago, turkish artist aydın büyüktaş turned the streets of istanbul upside down to form surreal city scenes for his series ‘flatland’. now, having recently returned from a trip to the united states, büyüktaş has completed a second installment in the series that completely warps american landscapes and defies the laws of physical existence. drawing from the satirical novel ‘flatland: a romance of many dimensions’ by edwin abbott — which tells the story of a two-dimensional world occupied by geometric figures — the artist has once again distorted viewers perception of space and dimension.
the locations included in büyüktaş’ ‘flatland II’ series took more than two months to scout and plan. over the course of another month, büyüktaş shot the photos over about 10,000 miles of land in the united states. using between 18-20 photos, the artist then carefully created digital collages that stretch into the sky and fold backwards onto themselves. rolling landscapes and cow farms seemingly double over, while baseball and football stadiums appear to reverse the laws of gravity.
‘the idea that I could depict surreal places that I saw in my dreams and thought of in my childhood gradually started to occur in my mind,’ büyüktaş describes. ‘during my childhood and adolescence, I read science fiction series of writers such as isaac asimov and H.G. wells and scientific and technical journals. these books made me question issues such as wormholes, black holes, parallel universes, gravitation, and the bending of space and time. while I was reading ‘hyperspace’ by michio kaku, I was obsessed with the idea of a black hole occurring in the place we live, and how it would bend space, time and place.’
