Kokedama Forest Installation

Architect: Nomad Studio

Location: Philadelphia, United state

Year: 2021


The ephemeral installation, a miniature sculptural forest consisting of more than 1,200 forestry seedling kokedamas nested within an inverted dome carved out from a fragile and intricate metal network.

Hundreds of seedlings displaying their intimate relationship with soil supported by a 7.5 feet high three-dimensional metal structure. This assemblage has been woven with steel inviting the contradictory blend of strength and delicacy that is implicit in all living networks.

This stimulating sculptural micro-forest focuses on the fact that soil is one of the key habitats of the planet which too often is undervalued despite being indispensable.
