The Living Wall

Western New York is blessed with a gem of an open green space known as the Griffis Sculpture Park, located approximately one hour south of downtown Buffalo. The 400-acre park is filled with more than 250 sculptures, from towering Amazonian women by founder Larry Griffis to climbable giant metal mushrooms and sculpted men. This summer, the permanently outdoor collection is joined by 14 plywood structures designed and built by 100 freshmen architecture students from the University of Buffalo, a project called The Living Wall.

I traveled to Buffalo (my hometown) after attending the Montreal International Interior Design Show and drove down to Griffis Sculpture Park with my dad on Memorial Day. The Living Wall, dubbed "a linear community of pods," was installed at the park in April on the lawn near the entrance.
