Ginkgo Canopy

Description

Located at Brookside Gardens, Wheaton, MD. The shapes and forms of the Ginkgo Biloba, the world’s oldest tree with its attractive lobed fan-shaped leaves, became the inspiration for a shade canopy structure. Dappled light and dark create a shadow play across the boardwalk as the sun travels through the sky. The support structure references a tree trunk with branches, leading up to the crown of cut out Ginkgo leaves. 2015 - Powder coated aluminum & steel 11.5' x 16' x 14' Photography by John Dean
