Los Angeles and the federal state of Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany have one thing in common. The number of registered cars is about 7.000.000. Assuming that one car has a surface area of about 5 square meter there are circa 35 square kilometre of sheet metal driving around.

That's enough to cover the entire inner city of Stuttgart or half of Hollywood or 3.500 football fields in metal. Imagine this area would be covered by green space! Our goal is to explore several aspects of greened cars. Speculative design prototypes give us the chance to debate about one kind of future, implying "what if" questions.

For greenskin it was important to use tangible ideas and mix them up with challenges we are currently facing in our urban mobility.

Continuing on this train of thoughts, what would happen, if organisations with more than one vehicle would implement greenskin? Could our mobility at least negate small portions of its externalities? Revaluing public open space through greenery, countering the urban heat island effect, improving air and water quality, increase of biodiversity and balancing the carbon footprint naming a few.
