Living Wall

Here's the living wall I've been working on for a hotel in downtown Manhattan. The entire thing will take up 60' of vertical space and 25' horizontal. It will be in the backyard/courtyard of this hotel, and it will be the view that the hotel's guests have outside their room windows. The plants hang in panels, which are invisible on the surface level, and the top 20' is a kinetic sculpture of painted aluminum panels that move in the wind.

A waterfall cascades through the entire thing in metal trays. The whole thing takes a lot of planning and coordinated effort between architects, engineers, steel fabricators, growers, irrigation people, lighting people, and myself as the designer -- so it's not even going to be installed until 2008, but when it goes up I'll be posting the pics for everyone to see!

  • Yeah, it's pretty exciting! I forgot to mention, it's the biggest living wall garden ever to go up in New York or anywhere in the U.S., to my knowledge.
