The Verdant Walk

"The Verdant Walk," a temporary installation created for Cleveland Public Art by the Toronto-based studio North Design Office, brought new life to the Cleveland Mall for two years with its glowing orb sculptures and landscaping backdrop of native Ohio grasses.

In addition to raising awareness about solar power, the installation also worked to "increas[e] the public's appreciation of this important and historic civic landscape," according to Canadian Architect magazine.

"The Verdant Walk is a response to Cleveland's industrial heritage and its new green agenda," says artist Alissa North. "[The city] is moving forward with alternative sources of energy and sustainable development and is poised to step thoughtfully into the next era."
