:Asif Khan has created three temporary pavilions thick with plants to give the harried London public space to relax, work and socialise Khan's Forest installation for MINI Living features three box-like structures, including one on stilts that visitors must climb into from its base. Located within walking distance of each other in Shoreditch, the spaces are designed to encourage local residents, workers and visitors to cross paths. The plant-filled spaces – named Connect, Create and Relax – are underpinned by the Japanese idea of shinrin-yoku, which translates as forest bathing. Each of three rooms is made from layers of corrugated plastic sheeting. The rooms have been filled with plants specially picked out by horticulturalist Jin Ahn. Visitors are encouraged to take away plants, and can also donate plants that they cannot look after anymore.
