In-Contro, Spontaneity and Planning
In-Contro, Spontaneity and Planning. 2011
Plants and trees are able to grow in a variety of environmental conditions. In nature they grow without a precise order and pattern. On the other hand, in the cities the position of plants and trees is often planned with a limited variety of species in specific areas. This is why it is very rare to find spontaneously growing plants in an built environment.
“In-contro” (in English, incontro = to meet, contro = against) is a series of seven images from the industrial area of Kalasatama, close to the city centre of Helsinki, where spontaneity and planning are meeting in a built environment.
