London is known for its fog, but the city has never seen a mist like this: it sustains the greenhouse's plants and, according to its creator, imparts nutrients to visitors' skin. The "Horticultural Spa & Apothecary Experience," designed by Loop.PH, features a wood scaffold that supports young plants while a large inflatable bubble immerses visitors in the herb-infused "medicinal fog." The fragrant vapor features the essences of juniper, rosemary, ginger, and other aromatic plants. While the Horticultural Spa resembles a space-age remix of the communal public baths of the 19th and 20th centuries, it also explores (and hopes to present a solution for) how future cities will wash themselves and grow food as water becomes scarcer.
