Urban Air Garden in Los Angeles

Artist Stephen Glassman wants to create an ‘Urban Air Garden‘ in Los Angeles, planting bamboo across an old cantilevered billboard display, left from the 1994 earthquake.

It’s a beautiful project and, of course, brings to mind that great Ogden Nash poem:

I think that I shall never see
a billboard lovely as a tree.
Perhaps, unless the billboards fall,
I’ll never see a tree at all.

Glassman says “Part of my impulse is to create a crack in the skyline with something alive, beautiful, and meaningful.” He uses bamboo as it is “light and supple yet strong and structural”. Glassman is raising $100K for his project through Kickstarter.
