The structure greets visitors on first arrival with an impressive take on a traditional wall that would otherwise be an overlooked necessity. The temporary entrance simultaneously acts as both a resting space and a point of guidance that brings visitors towards the grounds.
The piece’s title reflects the importance placed on the unit, a strong space to act as an interactive site for people to walk on and around, while also containing plants embedded in its structure. The varied angles of the design frame a seating area, while open webbing is the perfect base for the different mosses planted inside the honeycomb-esque panels.
An interactive design, Surface Deep was created in collaboration with students from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design.
