Patient gardenter – live installation from young Swedish studio visiondivision, designed to symbolize the dynamics of environmental change in a continuous connection with the development of architecture and ecology issues. The implementation of the conceptual design designers took place in the week-long seminar recently held in Milan (Italy).
Ten Japanese cherry trees planted in a circle with a diameter of 8 meters, became the basic building blocks for the formation of a two-tier structure, which occurs by bending and twisting of plants.
Germs Patient gardenter were planted on the campus of Polytechnic University of Milan. Trimming and planting branches and trunks of sakura, the gardeners will manage the growth and shape of the structure of living over time.
To assist in the conceptual growth of trees in the center of the circle designers installed a temporary wooden structure with ropes and fasteners, which aims to support and guide the branches of the beautiful sakura.
The project includes installation of the living stairs and railings, formed of branches of plants and ensure safe access to the second level. Under the shade of the trees you can resting on the grass, and, climbing up, enjoy the views of the surrounding landscape. In addition, stairs and railings will allow the harvest of fruit-bearing trees. Gardeners, who will control the growth of trees, was handed a detailed plan for the maintenance of living structures.
In order to create a beautiful and comfortable terrain, the authors have developed a draft plan of artificial changes in the surface of land situated within the installation.
However, the use of the final result of the development of living structures will be possible only after 80 years.
