Abstract

It is a hotel for plants. People can check in plants when they go travelling and people who are around take care of the plants. The aim was to explore new social relations among local members with plants as the medium. It challenged people's normative domestic relation with their plants and engaged people with the new possibility of collaboration. Thus, Plant Hotel served as a relational and provocative agent. The first Plant Hotel was open in a Punavuori neighbrhood. The next ones in 2015summer will be open in kindergartens and the elderly nursing homes.
