‘URBAN BUDS’ uses the concept of food as a sign of cultural identity. The very interesting thing about food concerns the aspect of personalization, since all the people involved in this type of activity major their personally visible throughout gardening. The design involves the metaphor of a suitcase as a symbol of cultural background.
