Felder Rushing’s Residence

Fondren - Jackson, MS


Green Roof Arbor & Rainwater Harvesting Canopy

This eclectic design of a green roof entry arbor works as a strong focal point and access to horticulturalist and radio personality Felder Rushing’s famous garden.  The roof holds a living garden that Felder tends to himself.  The rainwater harvesting entry canopy integrated into this front porch echoes the repeating theme of circles within his garden and yard, as well as the circular design of the Entry Arbor.  The rainwater cistern acts as a vertical sculptural element that carries the eye up through the yard to the front porch.
