The Urban Growth Bench

With the idea of bringing nature up closer to urban inhabitants I developed this bench for a competition in Portland, Oregon.

The competition was about how you design as much as what you design--they wanted to see the whole process. While I had fun playing with this mix of metal, wood, and landscape all in one piece of furniture, my design was not ultimately selected. Presenting how it would be made in a video and creating a small model to be sent in with the submission however was very interesting.

A poster submission was required too.
