We were asked to join Vertical Gardens in developing the landscape for a new metro station in Riyadh designed by Snöhetta. A long curving garden of local and drought-tolerant plants form a garden to explore adjacent to the metro entrance with local date palms dotting the entry plaza. The walls of lower atrium will be draped with plants forming a rich green vertical wall. The adjacent planters will utilize the same plant materials, creating the appearance of a continuous plant tapestry.
