I’m a big fan of the blog There, I Fixed It, which covers “Epic Kludges and Jury Rigs,” according to their tag line. While most of the time, they’re posting about the bad and the ugly, every now and then a really good jury rig comes through my feed from them. This particular one caught my eye and one commenter tracked down the source. This drawbridge-style window garden, named Volet Végétal, comes to us from Paris-based design and architecture firm BarreauCharbonnet. As one of the selections from the “Jardin Jardin” design contest, they’ll be showing their prototype at le Jardin des Tuileries exhibition this summer. Check out this video for how they made it.
