Participants were asked to submit a 20′ x 20′ mural, on a wall slated for demolition. We reinterpreted the parameters as Architects by creating a real “trompe l’oeil”, a physical, three-dimensional experience. Using discarded pallets, we proposed a “living wall”. In the cavities of the pallets we imagined plants and soil creating a microclimate, while providing an opportunity for community participation and growth; a primary goal for NbPAC. Between the existing wall and the new wall a change in the texture of the ground reinforce the three-dimensional experience. The visitor is sandwiched between the decay of one structure and the potential for growth and development in another.
