Mpls landscape architects Rosenlof/Lucas rock the flatlandscape in a fence devised of rocks and wire. This structural material found a new, powerful effect that's natural and urban at the same time.

Gabions are stone-filled wire baskets developed to stabilize soil and prevent erosion. Here, they are 4-inches thick and hand-filled with gneiss granite, though other native stones or references could be used.
