But vertical climbing plants long to stretch way beyond planar limits. In their search for light and freedom they chase upwards to form intriguing three dimensional columns of organic green magnificence.
Cables can be arranged in any density and spatial configuration to facilitate the required level of plant mass and sculptural form, transforming vertical spaces with organic creativity.
Brisbane’s new QEII Supreme Court Building houses such a structure. Within the building’s transparent atria, located from Levels 3 to 5 and 12 to 17, stand 40 floor-to-ceiling cylindrical cable trellises. Spanning 20m in height, these custom tri-cable trellises provide structure for the plants to weave their way upwards. And the results are spectacular providing refreshing and unique natural features that can be seen from all levels of the office adjacent.
Designed by Architectus + Guymer Bailey, the sculptures utilise horizontal stainless steel rings spaced equally up 8mm AGS1 G316 stainless steel cables to provide the sculptural form.
