Announcing our February #2019
Portland chapter meeting! Lisa Meddin is the owner of @harmonydesignnw
, a landscape design and consulting company. We are so excited to have someone like Lisa in the PNW. This is a great opportunity to understand landscaping that’s local, how exterior and interior design principals are different, and how to collaborate with a landscape designer/contractor to fulfill any project. #idsportland
🌨Winter in Seneca.
Beautiful conditions today, here's an aerial image I took of our fresh blanket of snow! 📷 DJI Mavic II Pro. 📍 Seneca Creek, Maryland.
Agnes Denes, "Wheatfield - A Confrontation: Battery Park Landfill, Downtown Manhattan", 1982. "Pioneering conceptual artist Denes once recalled losing her sense of language as a child, after moving from Budapest to Sweden to the United States all before reaching the age of 16. “The creativity had to come out in some way,” she explained. “It blurted itself out in a visual form.” Denes is best known for her environmental intervention Wheatfield – A Confrontation (1982), in which the artist brought a vacant lot in lower Manhattan to life with two acres of golden wheat. Supported by the Public Art Fund, Denes began by cleaning the area, then covered the city streets in over 200 truckloads of topsoil, and finally installed an irrigation system to support the wheat’s growth cycle over a four-month period. By early fall, the artist harvested over one thousand pounds of grain, which then traveled to 28 cities worldwide in “The International Art Show for the End of World Hunger.”
Denes hoped that the earthwork, planted in Manhattan, would call “people’s attention to having to rethink their priorities.” Clearly, we humans still have a lot to catch up with it.

in a soaring, contemporary #greenhouse
, with carefully controlled #temperature
. It replicates the cool moist conditions found in tropical mountain regions between 1,000 metres and 3,000 metres above sea level, found in South-East Asia, Middle- and South America.
The 42-metre high #CloudMountain
is an intricate structure completely clad in epiphytes such as #orchids
, ferns, peacock ferns, spike- and clubmosses, bromeliads and anthuriums. It consists of a number of levels, each with a different theme, including The Lost World, The Cavern, The Waterfall View, The Crystal Mountain, The Cloud Forest Gallery, The Cloud Forest Theatre and The Secret Garden.
An architectural masterpiece at the intersection of #nature
