Project Description

FROM THE FIRM:

HARRISON GREEN’s design concept plays with the idea of the pixelated image and how this can be translated into a built landscape at a micro and macro scale. By working through a series of gridded pixel patterns, HARRISON GREEN was able to design a sustainable, low maintenance and low weight-bearing installation, engaging the viewer perspective by manipulating height, pattern and textural elements. Through the use of a strict grid, 24-inch square artificial buxus were arranged to create a layered tapestry of green. The planters, situated at various heights, created a multi-level design spanning 3400 sq. feet, where elements appear to change depending on the scale at which the installation is viewed. HARRISON GREEN’s design was built to withstand challenging elements of urban environments while creating a sophisticated landscape, complimenting the Roof of the International Style Building at any view.
