Teammates: Josh Dycus, Sarah Kate Sommers, Ryan Meiser, and Kendall Putmon
Our team wanted to design a garden that wraps itself around a column and eventually decomposes due to the plants that inhabit the garden. As the pine boards came from the forest and were made into a structure, The plants from the garden will return the structure back into the soil thus continuing the cycle of life.
The second part of the project is understanding how one would interact with the structure. We created a unique hideaway so that you can surround yourself in this cycle.
These two ideas intertwine because we sometimes forget that we are part of this same cycle, we are to enjoy the Earth as it is in the present but our lives are ephemeral in the big picture.
