Lettuce play – Atelier Altern

French landscape designers Atelier Alterm produced this fabulous polly tunnel / vegetable patch near Amiens for their client, the Center of Arts for Amiens . Based on the islands of the Hortillonnages, the angular temporary structure houses and celebrates rare varieties of lettuce which have been banned from production by the French government. They hope to promote the re-introduction of a wider variety of lettuce and to encourage interest in the agricultural industry and the policies placed on it.

We think it is stunning.
