The Mobile Garden City responds to the growing pressure on land in big cities, where construction can dominate everyday life, by developing a community space and a growing hub on a piece of land lost between purposes. The Mobile Garden City has been instrumental in creating communal space and activities where local networks can grow. It showcases the vital importance of such spaces within permanent developments in the park and reignites the vital connection between food and its production. It demonstrates sustainability through re-use of materials, technologies such as solar power, and the use of an anaerobic digester. Volunteers and trainees worked on the project, and there is a design manual to ensure that the design vision moves with the garden. Through its design and concept, it succeeds in developing fledging communities of the Olympic Park, and offers a replicable model for ‘meanwhile’ sites amid the constant flux of modern cities.
