Showcased at this year's Canada Blooms garden show, the rippling design creates pockets of tucked away micro-gardens that are hidden within its undulating levels. The multi-surfaced design unfolds to reveal these "garden parcels", inviting visitors to take a closer look.

Ascensio Mah recently teamed up with students from the Harvard Graduate School of Design to create this beautiful twisting planter embedded with a series of miniature gardens. Showcased at this year’s Canada Blooms garden show, the rippling design unfolds to reveal “garden parcels” that invite visitors to take a closer look.

The modular garden was designed to be temporary and consists of 190 individual boxes that can be disassembled and reorganized into different formations. The designers say that by using multiple surfaces different microclimates can be created, encouraging a variety of plant types to flourish. At the Toronto show spaces were created in between each layer of the garden to provide secluded shady patches for moss to thrive.
