The Philodendron architectural folly is a pop-up oasis designed to resemble the naturally comforting form of an overgrown Philodendron plant.
Like a beacon, the bright green structure invites visitors to relax and meander underneath its overscaled tropical canopy, offering a moment away from the harsh sun. The choice of the leaf-like inflatable shapes, easily recognizable to kids and adults alike, highlights the area as a point of interest to interact with and explore. Additionally, the color choice creates a visual connection with the lush tropical foliage of Miami, and connects with the city’s playful nature.
