Plantscape: Architectural Planters By Maxim Scherbakov

Russian designer Maxim Scherbakov of Saint Petersburg-based studio Plan-S23 designed ‘Plantscape‘, a sculpturallooking piece that operates as plant pots. Made of concrete, limestone, and brass, each one of the various structures can be arranged in various ways.

The designer says: “This project is an experiment on the theme of survival of plants not adapted to their life urbanistic environment. It is a polygon with various scenarios where the plants may have to find their way to the light. Modules mimic real urban conditions, such as the gap between the parapets and concrete structures, paving tiles, ventilation and sewage hatches, in short, all those places, where seemingly nothing can grow.”
