Europe In Bloom

Europe in bloom is 5000 plants arrange into a map of Europe on a scaffolding structure attached to a building façade in Copenhagen. Felt ‘pockets’ are attached to the metal scaffold, and plants are inserted.

The plants selected for Europe in Bloom were native species from across the continent. This project doesn’t focus on agriculture. Rather, it presents a construction method and aesthetic that could support growing productive gardens in the future.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The Green wall (not necessary ag)  system could be used for agriculture too. Linked to the European Environment Agency, this façade was critical in raising awareness of growing and allowing biodiversity to flourish in a highly popular square.
