Cascading Vegetation

Client/ Arnolfini + Bristol City Council - 2013

For the St Anne’s Commission, Eudaimon will create two exterior planting systems to become part of the architecture at both the Infants site at Bloomfield Road and the Juniors site atLichfield Road. Early designs show a zigzag structure, made up of horizontal and vertical cylinders with piercings for seeds to be sewn and grown up into saplings.  Much like a marble-run game, pupils will be able to sow seeds up and down the structure, watching the growth of plants and the resultant changes to the sculptural form. Eudaimon will apply a similar technical and design strategy to their '50 Stokes Croft' Vertical Garden project to produce a drip irrigation system for the planters at St Anne’s. Eudaimon are working closely with the school to look at ways the project crosses over with the curriculum, especially Forest School, and plan to run a series of gardening workshops for pupils.

The work is due for completion in 2014.
