It’s a living masterpiece that offers visitors to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s (SFMOMA) a visual respite from indoor art. Designed by Habitat Horticulture, the living wall measures 29 ft. 4 in. tall and 150 ft. wide. More than 19,000 plants in 37 species create an ever-changing natural work of art. Many of the plants are California natives. A great video interview with Habitat Horticulture’s David Brenner outlines the design and installation process.
Among the natives are Asarum, Oxalis oregana, Vaccinium cespitosum, Ribes sanguineum var. glutinosum, Polystichum munitum and Clinopodium douglasii.
