To help promote green living habits in Vietnam, the 1+1>2 International Architecture Company partnered with Action for the City to create a Vegetable Nursery Home made from bamboo and over 2,000 plastic bottles. Apart from its function as a greenhouse, the structure is also a place for farmers to rest away from the rice fields, and a place where children can play and learn about their local ecosystem . The project is also part of a unique collaboration between the governments of Vietnam and Ireland to better support local citizens in the South East Asian country.
