This Infinite Green sculpture in Wroclaw, Poland is a spiral-shaped wooden building covered entirely with hanging plants. Built from steel and wood, the sculpture houses over 100 different plant species – 3,000 plants in total – distributed across seven shelves and 110 square meters of space. The designer, Adam Kalinowski, created the piece for the European Capital of Culture Wroclaw 2016 art program.

The Infinite Green is based on the designer’s previous project The Green Wall- a system which dynamically interacts with the environment and uses changes in temperature and morning dew as an additional source of water for the plants. The new sculpture follows a similar principle.

The steel and wood structure forms a green-roofed infinity loop of shelves which house over 3,000 plants that blossom at different times of the year. The diversity of perennials, succulents and other plant types create an evergreen environment which visitors can access and observe from the inside.

Kalinowski’s work is focused on “nature untouched by human hand, not idyllic landscape petrified by human values and sense of handiness but ancient nature being changed only by natural processes of passing time in incredible long cycles.” The Infinite Green continues in the same vein and could be considered an inspirational work of art for architects.
