IKEA Just Released Free Instructions For A Spectacular Sustainable Garden

This could possibly be the most amazing indoor gardening structure we’ve ever seen, and people all over the world are being encouraged to build one.

Space10, a Danish design lab supported by IKEA, has officially open-sourced The Growroom, “an artistic exploration of the incredible potential of urban farming.” The pavilion is ‘sliced’ to provide optimal light and water flow for the weeks worth of herbs and vegetables it’s capable of growing, but also to create a serene shelter for anyone who steps inside.

The innovative structure was tailored by architects Mads-Ulrik Husum and Sine Lindholm, and is made with nothing more than plywood and screws. The best part? All of the building instructions are available completely free online, making The Growroom a practical and sustainable DIY project.
