MAK Center: Vertical Garden Competition Exhibition

The MAK Center and SCI-Arc invited thirteen emerging architecture firms and architects to design a "vertical garden" at the Schindler House. To contend with the vertical growth of the city, a vertical garden was proposed to occupy the edges of the Schindler House property, adding a new dimension to the landscape of the low-rise Schindler House and creating a green buffer between the house and its neighbors. The Schindler House is as inseparable from its garden as it is from its condominium neighbors; the vertical garden addressed this condition and posited new ideas relating to landscape, public art, urban growth, and architecture.

The following teams’ competition entries were be on display in the North Lobby Gallery at SCI-Arc: Ed Keller and Carla Leitao- A|UM Studio, David Fletcher + Juan Azulay, Tom Wiscombe–Emergent, Griffin Enright Architects, Heather Flood, Jeffrey Inaba, Darin Johnstone, Elena Manferdini, Marcelo Spina–PATTERNS, Jason Payne + Ramiro Diaz-Granados, Florencia Pita, Alexis Rochas, Taalman Koch Architecture, and David Erdman–SERVO.
