This installation is a structure that unwraps and twists to create larger garden pockets while simultaneously providing an undulating surface that embeds a micro garden within its thickness. The surface itself achieves many tasks, defining and framing protected planter spaces, creating multiple orientations and forming a twisted surface that undulates while structurally stabilizing itself. As a system, the surface is able to unfold at different angles to provide different scales of pocket gardens as well as different degrees of shade, producing a variety of microclimates on the moss surface and within the garden pockets.
