Plant Hotel opens in two service centres in Helsinki in 2015 summer. It is a hotel for plants. People check in their plants to the centres when they go travelling, and elderly who are around take care of the plants.

By engaging people in interacting with this service, it asks a question: Can we ask for help from the elderly? How and what?

The project attempts to reshape the boundaries between the elderly and other citizens in the urban context.

 

Plant Hotel opens in Kinapori (Kinaporinkatu 7-9, 1.6-31.7, 2015 ) and Kamppi Palvelukeskus (Salomonkatu 21B, 12.6-14.8)
