Urban farming as an exhibit in a museum: P.S. 1 NY

I am currently working on documenting a “green construction” of a building conceived as a work of art to be settled in the outdoor space of an art center (will post about it soon) and when doing some reasearch on the topic, I came across the exhibit named Public Farm 1 in P.S.1, that opened in mid 2008.

The concept designed by WORK Architecture was about : 
Public Farm 1 will function as an urban farm while providing an outdoor social space for the summer.  …..   P.F.1’s intent is to educate thousands of visitors on sustainable urban farming through the unique medium of contemporary architecture.
It looked an experiment between ecology, urbanism and architecture, but all based in a museum space.
