Floating Garden

Students: Pablo Osorio, Francisco Moure
Studio Title: Gow-Vertical SP2012 – The Imbalancing Act of Entropic Architecture
Instructor: Marcelyn Gow

This project is an idea that exposes vegetation in a new way. The project is transparent and it presents nature completely naked. It elevates plants up un the air, and it gives the pedestrian a new perspective about the plants they were so familiar with. They experience a new walk in the park.

The plants gradually reveal to the pedestrian as they approach the site first exposing them in pedestals high in the air.
