Plant-in City is a modular series of frames that come in a variety of sizes which can be combined to create a customized plant habitat, large or small. Plant-In City adds a variety of Arduino-powered sensors to monitor the plants and their environment. This in turn connects to the web, allowing you to care for your plants from afar. The designers are a group of New York City-based architects and developers who want to establish a new design practice focused on supporting our relationship with plants through flexible, open-source architecture, media, and technology solutions.

This revolutionary planter system contains built-in sensors that are activated by sun exposure, changes in soil moisture, humidity, temperature, and other natural cycles. Once activated, these sensors translate the environmental data into sounds or visuals, creating an imaginary vibrant wilderness.
