This amazing edible Eathouse is a literal take on urban agriculture [1] by Stuurlui Stedenbouw and Atelier GRAS! [2]. Spotted over at Plataforma Arquitectura [3], the locally-grown garden home is bursting forth with green walls [4] bearing a variety of edible fruits and veggies. The modular structure is designed to host a summer crop, so all of its construction materials can be easily dismantled for reuse at the end of each harvest.
