Emilio Alarcon’s Greenhouse Buses concept intends to improve intercity mobility by converting electric buses into mobile greenhouses, tackling the concerns of global warming and a lack of green space in cities. The digital art project proposes using the available space inside buses to grow plants, shrubs, and small trees, and transforming them into itinerant sanctuaries in the middle of cities.
The project is completed through an iterative method that makes use of the popular artificial intelligence platform, Midjourney. Check out what it’s all about!
The AI Series by Emilio Alarcon Reimagines Intercity Transportation With Movable Greenhouse Buses
‘Greenhouse Buses’ by Emilio Alarcon is a project that aims to revolutionize intercity transportation by converting electric buses into mobile greenhouses. This plan seeks to address the issues of global warming and a lack of green space in cities.
The idea behind the greenhouse buses is to use the available space on the buses to grow plants, shrubs, and tiny trees, transforming them into an itinerant oasis in the center of metropolitan areas. Because the buses are enclosed, they are ideal for generating a controlled greenhouse-like environment. Sunlight can pass through transparent or translucent bubbles formed of glass, EFTE (ethylene Teflon), or polycarbonate, allowing plants to receive the light they need for photosynthesis.
