Man turns billboards into forests, creates urban “breathing spaces”
The city of Los Angeles could soon be home to numerous floating forests, which come as a result of one man's idea to take your run-off-the-mill billboards and turn them into urban oases.This green-oriented project is known as Urban Air, and its goal is to provide the people residing in the city with some much needed fresh air.
As well as this, it is intended to breathe some life into an otherwise dull urban skyline.
For the time being, Stephen Glassman (i.e. the artist who first thought about designing such floating forests) and his team are focusing on LA, but they hope to soon set up such urban oases in other parts of the world as well.
These greenheads may have a lot of ideas, yet they lack the funding needed in order to implement them and hope that ordinary folk will agree to chip in and lend them a helping hand.
