Winning the award as Best Product in the A + Product category of the Architizer Award 2021, is the brand new modular truss Green Screen.
A unique system of its kind, a real innovation in the field of architecture and design.
The GsTree project exploits the shape and growth systems of plants, adapting them to the architectural world. In other words, it builds a 3D system tree-like in shape, capable of rising and growing plants up to 3 meters high.
It is not the first time that designers have exploited the potential of modular lattice systems, but gsTree seems to bring a real revolution.
The three-dimensional shapes that can be created through the system offer dozens of different possibilities and alternatives. Hundreds of plants could be able to grow in serenity, without worrying about space.
So let's see the general characteristics of the project and what are all the different potentials offered.
The Greenscreen trellis and future developments
One of the most interesting aspects related to the construction of the new gsTree module, concerns the possibility of using low plants in a completely innovative way.
Instead of just using them as decoration, even low plants could turn into useful tools for creating shade. The greenscreen trellis would replace the annoying canopies, ensuring protection and a good dose of aesthetics.
Likewise, it could be used for creating vertical fences, intended to support privacy.
City parks themselves could use gsTree to create spectacular installations, destined to bloom during the spring.
At the moment, the GsTree system is available in various finishes; black, bronze, earth, silver, green and white, to which is added the possibility of requesting customized colors.
Thanks to greenscreen, we would be able to create one-of-a-kind public pavilions, or to beautify the home gardens themselves.
“I believe our organization and product offerings provide a framework for architects, designers and contractors to realize their vision and see it come to life, all while taking into account the environment and budgetary needs. (…) We are an organization whose goal is sustainable growth and doing things right ".
said greenscreen president Kory Levoy.
