The end goal of this study was an open-air living wall structure. Every part of the structure's design was informed by an in-depth visual exploration and research study of the Pachyveria succulent. This process involved precise measurements, dissections, sketches, and analysis of my specimen which I nurtured throughout the entire length of the project. Creation of architectural drawings of the succulent, as well as patterns created on Adobe Illustrator informed my creation of the structure itself. Each module of the living wall is identical, self-draining and self-sustaining, with the water from one planting unit draining into the unit directly below, enabling each planter to receive water regardless of the trajectory of the rainfall. The proposed site for this structure is the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. The living wall is situated for optimal sunlight. All of the photos of my model were taken in the heliodon simulating the sunlight at various intervals throughout the day during the month of December at this specific site. The entire model was constructed manually, each piece precisely hand-measured, hand-cut and glued.
