‘The Infinite Green’ By Adam Kalinowski, Is A Public Sculpture Covered In Plants

1

Adam Kalinowski has designed ‘The Infinite Green’, a sculpture that has been created as part of the visual art program of the European Capital of Culture in Wroclaw, Poland.

2

The Infinite Green” is an example of a ‘green sculpture’ which is a combination of steel and wood construction, soil and vegetating plants.

The sculpture may remind people of the graphic symbol of infinity especially observed from a birds point of view perspective. The viewer has access into interior of the structure.

4

Additional aspect of the sculpture may be a color of plants: many shades of green color appear while different species are planted on 110 m2 on 7 shelves-levels of a sculpture.

5

They also blossom in a different time of a year. Only perennials in quantity of 100 have been applied here.

6

This solution has a practical issue in mind – to produce habitual structure in a hot and dry climate which may hold friendly environment for a man: interior space of lower temperature and increased humidity in compare to dry and hot surroundings of the structure.

7

Infinity (symbol: 8) is an abstract concept describing something without any limit…and in this case symbolizes eternity and importance of living nature for human beings as a necessary factor for survival of human race.

A skylight is located in the upper part of the structure providing the main source of light inside the structure during the day.

9

Irrigation system is applied under each layer especially considering internal parts of a structure where shade plants are plated.

10

Less dose of water is required by succulents and bigger quantity are needed by shade plants.
