The Infinite Green is based on the designer’s previous project The Green Wall- a system which dynamically interactswith the environment and uses changes in temperature and morning dew as an additional source of water for the plants. The new sculpture follows a similar principle.

The steel and wood structure forms a green-roofed infinity loop of shelves which house over 3,000 plants that blossom at different times of the year. The diversity of perennials, succulents and other plant types create an evergreen environment which visitors can access and observe from the inside.
Kalinowski’s work is focused on “nature untouched by human hand, not idyllic landscape petrified by human values and sense of handiness but ancient nature being changed only by natural processes of passing time in incredible long cycles.” The Infinite Green continues in the same vein and could be considered an inspirational work of art for architects.
