Here, time weighs in as the key component of the garden that changes, unchangeable, in step with the seasons. This garden tells us the eternal story of life, of natural cycles and of the endless renewal of plants. No matter if the plot of land is drought-stricken, abandoned and laid to waste, the idea of “rebirth” takes shape and plant life flourishes once again.
Influenced by the Russian artist Kazimir Malevich, construction of this garden thus presents us, in its very centre, with a black square, symbolising the “beginning of everything”. From this square will emerge a new garden in bloom, fragrant and pregnant with the promises of life that visitors will discover at their own pace.
