- For urban dwellers without a tree in sight, Matteo Cibic’s mobile Tree Trolley makes perfect sense. The Milan artist’s concept is a tree-cum-WiFi hotspot on wheels. Residents or neighbourhoods rent and park the trolley in any on-street parking spot.
- Where most urban environment projects are expensive and time-consuming, Tree Trolleys are geared for spontaneity and accessibility: an ingenious, low-commitment way to green cities, one parking spot at a time (Architizer.com 7 August 2012).
- Financially, the trolleys could be paid for by neighbourhoods and rotated, creating a changing network of green space to beautify streets and add a dose of digital productivity.
