Studio/Institution: Personal Work - Modular Mobile Vine Wall Client: N/A Genre: Residential Exterior Software: 3DS Max 2011 Design - Mental Ray Description:
Hey everyone. I'm reluctantly posting this image. I'd like to get crits, but have not secured the IP for the design and would like to eventually be involved in producing these on a large scale.
I designed and built a few prototypes of these modular mobile vine walls last summer. The concept is essentially a mobile concrete planter with a 6' wooden trellis for assisting vertical growth. The unit is 36" wide by 11" deep by 6' tall. There are 4 360 degree castors inset in the base so they are not visable. The units can be ganged up in a row so they can be used as a temporary wall or outdoor space divider... or they can be used independantly as sculptural items.
I made two of these bad boys and grew ivy vines in one and cucumbers in the other. It worked very well The first concept had a wooden base and blew over with heavy winds once or twice so the cast concrete base was a natural progression to keep the center of mass low. C&C are welcome.
