FOLDED GARDEN

The basic structure of a rosemary plant is vertically straight, resembling a spine. The plant requires full sunlight, good drainage of water, and constant air circulation. For this plant to grow properly in a plant holder, the holder would have to give the plant structure but also enough space to let it branch out into different stems.

I decided to design a plant holder with a structure that gives the plant enough space for its roots to spread, but also leaves openings on either side for enough air to come in and out. The curved edges on the bottom provide a place for water to drain out.

I designed the module by manipulating the basic structure of a plant holder, using it’s trapezoidal features to enhance the different properties of the Rosemary.
