This gives new meaning to “turning the corner” for the green movement. I suppose, if this is what our best and brightest are working on, then turning that corner will take some time.
This is cute. I love it. It put a smile on my face today.
how do you turn the thing?
Might be a little difficult to see where you’re going. ??
That’s cool. I need one..
[…] Pictured: A lack of green urban spaces prompted a group from Dalhousie School of Architecture — Asher deGroot, David Gallaugher, Kevin James, and Jacob Jebailey — to create a whimsical artistic response: a grassed walking-wheel, which hints at sculptural possibilities for turf on every angle. This (and other marvellous photos) was taken by photojournalist André Forget. Pic sourced from Inhabitat. […]

Interesting project. I’d like to publish this on my website but I’ll give a link to your site to:p hope it’s ok. 10X
I’ll second that from Katie Oshea…. after you edited your blog to put OUR names in, you have left mine out and it never appears in connection with the project. Its been a good six months but I figure there is still time to get the credit for this project right… ASHER DEGROOT, David Gallaugher, Kevin James and Jacob Jebailey. Photo Andre Forget…. cheers
word! to your mother… earth!
haha great stuff
i see that someone named asher listed the three other people that worked on the project WITH him and i see you went back and edited so that their names were in there, but i believe you forgot the person who mentioned the other three students. you should be crediting FOUR students plus one other person who took the photograph. Looks like their name is Asher DeGroot. Crediting people is important.
This is an excellent invention,though how owuld you see and also you could put it in your wrk if u just want to walk for a little by attaching some sort of hinges or something so it would still rotate but in place.
Oh, and P.S. That wheel doesn’t work as well as you’d think. It’s not smooth running at all, it…. wiggles a bit, if thats what you’d call it, but it’s still pretty neat
omfg I saw this guy on my vacation! xD
I think that the wheel is coo; bbut I personally would never use such a contraption
The parking space I love and wish that I could get more info on
This parking spot idea would seem to draw more attention to the need for green space
That is genius… I live in montreal but right now i´m visiting Colombia… And i tell you a wheel of grass here would be a boom! wow genius!
[…] First, there was the wheel, then there were cities, then there was concrete, then there was no grass, now there is the Green Grass Wheel. […]
ohh yer i want one CRY
WERE DO YOU GET THEM FROM LOL
dats funny lol if you gunna run in a big wheel lol you might as well use grass lol it
luv ya’s tasha xxxxxxx

As one of the students who worked on the project I am extremely indebted to Andre Forget for the brilliant photograph that he took. I have a great appreciation for his profession. however I am wondering where credit is given on this website and others to the four of us who created the installation without which there would be no photograph or discussion. In addition to myself there are David Gallaugher, Kevin James, and Jacob Jebailey. Cheers
If gas prices go up any higher… I’m getting one.
How does one turn? Or does one just roll over any obstructions such as buildings, cars, people, small animals . . . .
Might be a little difficult to see where you’re going. ?? lol
I shot that photo of the grass wheel in Halifax. After getting many legit emails aksing to either post it or buy the photo i decided to do a quick google on “grass wheel”. I was disappointed to see it in so many places without credit. Don’t get me wrong i think photos are meant to been seen but all i ask as do many other visual journailist is credit. A name to the photo. Not hard to do really when you put in context the fact that one has to “steal” the photo on the web which takes time so simply adding a credit would be nice. Of course going to correct path and asking permission might be too hard in the day and age of instant clicking.
[…] If you’ve gotta run the wheel, you might as well do it in bare feet. Many of us are so busy being good little hamsters that we never have face time with green space. A group of students from Dalhousie School of Architecture decided to remedy this problem with a street-ready grass-lined wheel. » […]
That’s a very good sick idea… imo
i love bioneers, artists and canadians.
fantastic- i live in nyc and would love to have the wheel of grass for my dogs and i! bernadette
