Inspired by Nomad Studio’s Green Varnish installation, CAM presents a series of workshops with local horticultural experts and landscape architects.

Join Laurel Harrington, Associate Principal | Director of Landscape Architecture Christner for an informational workshop on pre-fab planting.  Nomad’s installation consists of a “vegetated blanket,” a form of prefabricated planting which is grown offsite by a contractor, in this case, Sempergreen, and then delivered and installed to the necessary architecture. This unique process requires many variables, dealing with a living object that must be transported, and once installed, must be maintained. The technology is quite revolutionary, and many local architecture firms, such as Christner have worked with clients to integrate with these kinds systems into their spatial design.
