The Green Wire consists in a wire framework, that runs through the city, connecting balconies, plant platforms and light-weight structures on roofs. On a level inbetween the ground floor and the sky, our proposition provides both plant diversity, animal habitats and shadow for the ground floor. The light structure connects window sills, public roofs, squares, parks and monumental buildings. Inhabitants are invited to plant and maintain easily accessible elements. Hanging plant conglomerates appear as colourfull elements in a highly mineral environment.

The framework adapts to its urban surroundings as it flows through the streets. We imagine it as a participative and collaborative model that keeps evolving and growing in time, giving space to nature in the city, more and more.

In our illustrations, the ancient city of Rome is represented by handmade silkscreen prints. The Green Wire was drawn by hand but digitally, symbolising the new interventions.
