    GLENSTONE SPLIT-ROCKER

    Split-Rocker is a colossal planted sculpture by the artist Jeff Koons permanently installed at Glenstone in Potomac, Maryland. Balancing horticultural realities with artistic intent, RAFT led a team of structural and mechanical engineers, metallurgists, soils and irrigation designers, greenhouse growers, and gardeners through the process of tailoring this constructed ecology to its new home.

    For a closer look, see Split-Rocker in the Washington Post, or schedule a visit to Glenstone.
