Clover tree

Clover Tree was designed to be beneficial in empty space in San Jose State University. Clover Tree is an eco-friendly structure that can serve as a sitting area for the students. Made of artificial grass (artificial because it is easier to maintain than real grass), the installation would allow students to sit, eat, read, or relax, almost bringing a picnic-like feel to the campus area. The leaves, which are built from sun panels, serve the dual function of providing shade underneath and capturing energy to power the multiple USB ports and power outlets that are present at the base of the structure. In this way, the installation allows students to effectively utilize the open space for rest, studying and building lasting memories.
