moth manor, the second entry to the design contest
The second entry for the coveted corner display booth at the leesberg flower and garden show.
Statement of Intent: This garden is inspired by giant silk moths. Thier elegance and soft textures are the point of origin for the design. The garden is not just inspired by moths it also functions as a hub for them. All of the plants either attract pollinating day moths or feed giant silk's larva, prompting them to cocoon in the garden. In the center of the garden are chairs and flashlights to see at night, however every vantage point was designed with a mobile viewer in mind. Also included is a display case housing specimins of all the plants that feed larval giant silk moths. The final result is a garden with subtle tranquility and scholarly specificity.
