The show-stopping central feature of the 2013 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show focused on London and its influence in the modern world. A fabulous display of English roses and a horticultural interpretation of royal palace gates opened to an allée of regal birch trees, leading to the show’s centerpiece: a sculptural, digitally enhanced rendition of Big Ben.
Each year the Show's centerpiece is designed by Sam Lemheney, Flower Show director, in partnership with GMR Design and with support from Barb King and Valley Forge Flowers. For the second year the team at Klip Collective designed and installed the audio/visual component of the Central Feature. Other contributors included Chessia Kelley of InLiquid Art & Design, who curated the installation of three sculptures by Brent Crothers.
