Environmental group the Hackney City Farm of London promoted designers to think about farming within the urban context by hosting a competition for the best ideas toward building with recycled, reused, or previously discarded subjects. The results were in and young designers Julian Bond, Sigrid Bylander, Lucy Paton and Benedetta Rogers won first place! Their project was named “Sill to Sill” demonstrating window sill square footage as a means for growing produce in containers….right there in the city. It was found in their research that Great Britain alone has 600 acres of total potential sill growing space. A mock up wall is cheery and inspiring with quaint windows and deep sills brightly painted. The extended sills were made from scaffolding boards; the timber sash windows themselves were pulled from the trash. Their haphazard placements across the installation is playful and fun. While most hold plants, some are close to the ground to double as a bench seat for those stopping by.
