Lily Jencks was asked to design a linear garden to create the VIP entrance area for Thomas Heatherwick's british pavilioin at the World Expo in Shanghai. The linear planting design reflects the narrow nature of the site, while the plants chosen --a mixture of grasses-- were chosen to relect the long tendrils of Heatherwick's Dandelion.
The grasses were planted in a gradient pattern using size of plant and spacing between plant to create a smooth gradient between each species.
