AstroTurf Gemütlichkeit #001


Eurotrash ∕ Faux Nature ∕ Furniture

U-Bahnhof Botanischer Garten

The first in a nauseatingly protracted series on the phenomena of AstroTurf carpeting on city streets. What is it about a strip of mildew-ridden faux-grass that makes us feel all cosy and rural? To what degree is the gastronomic experience enhanced by its presence under foot? Is there a correlation between zoning laws and carpet size?

SLAB will help to find some answers in the coming months. Keep it here.
