July 11, 2010: Porsche Horticulture

Quote:
The Porsche Garden was part of the Royal Horticultural Society Show at Hampton Court back in July of 2008. This stylish automobile storage system (or off-street parking solution) was part of Flemond Warland’s garden design installation which won Gold.


Won gold?
Methinks anyone that can afford this garden, doesn't need the Gold.

It does hold great possibilities for Halloween, however.

You're devious.

If you click on the link, you'll see that these rich Porshe owners actually live in a trailer.



SPUCK  Sunday Jul 11 06:13 AM

Seems fake. Look how accurately it has to be parked! Looks like the platform is about an inch bigger.



Sundae  Sunday Jul 11 06:28 AM

It is an installation for a competition - it's not someone's real house, garden or parking after all.

Flemon Warland specialise in conceptual design. From what I can tell they are Sim Flemons & John Warland. I likey. When I win the Euromillions I'll commission them to create a Cat Paradise Garden for my country home. Ideally an indoor one, so only one cat gets to share the Paradise. Eden before the fall and all that.

They used an actual product called CarDok, that's been around for some time.
There are a number of companies that make similar products for parking cars two high. I even saw them used in a NYC parking lot, 10 years ago.

And he has to drive on the green bit to get out. I like that people are thinking about this stuff though. Cars often don't match the surroundings and look like crap in front of houses.

My cars look like crap where ever I park them.

(Singing) I beg your pardon...I never promised you a Porsche garden....!

If someone was forgotten in the car there could be grave consequences.



xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Jul 11 11:17 PM

There's controls in the pit, and in a real installation I'll bet they'd have an entrance to the basement.

Well played.

If I had a garage like that, every single morning I would feel compelled to shout "Thunderbirrrrrrds aaarrreee ggooooooooo!".

Wallace and Gromit!



Cloud  Monday Jul 12 01:01 PM

I keep wanting this to be about something else . . . like wildflowers growing out of a Porsche shell



Griff  Monday Jul 12 01:57 PM

Something like this, from here?



Cloud  Monday Jul 12 02:13 PM

don't see any flowers growing out of that thing



classicman  Monday Jul 12 02:19 PM

This better?

I know a Rich Person, they have a little green patch of mint in their front driveway (the one for guests). The intent being that people roll up, crush the mint a little, and exit their posh conveyances to the refreshing scent of fresh minty goodness. I kid you not. So maybe that's what it's for?

Edit: No, looking at the plants, those aren't ones you'd want to drive on. So they're just in the way.

It was a clever thought.

Even this one's good:



Happy Monkey  Tuesday Jul 13 01:53 PM

It looks like those patches fit within the wheelbase, and serve to make the driveway look more like two walkways.

Yes. Ribbon driveways are not uncommon in my neighborhood.
