This exhibit, which to the uneducated eye looks like topiaries, are called Mosaiculture. Mosaic + Horticulture combined. Steel armatures are covered in a growing medium where plant plugs (hence the mosaic) were strategically placed. The living sculptures are maintain daily by horticulture teams.
The structures were created by a nonprofit company called International Mosaiculture of Montreal, Canada. The exhibits were put together up in Montreal and then transported to Atlanta via special, temperature controlled tractor trailers.
I was not lucky enough to explore this exhibit at night. On Thursday evenings through October the sculptures come to life with thousands of strategically placed twinkle lights!
