DuC Garden in Chongqing, China by Valentien+Valentien

The Bamboo-Pavilion of the artist Markus Heinsdorff is situated in the center of the DuC Garden that was built in China for the 8th International Garden Expo Chongqing 2011. The garden is intended to document the German-Chinese cooperation. The construction material of the pavilion becomes alive in the garden: A grove of  Phyllostachys nigra an extraordinary black bamboo, stands in contrast to the light bamboo construction of the pavilion.

DuC Garden

  • Architect: Valentien+Valentien
  • Name of Project: DuC Garden
  • Location: Chongqing, China
  • Artist: Markus Heinsdorff
  • Completion: 2011
  • Size: 500 m2
  • Client: Goethe Institute in Shanghai as part of the series and Germany and China in joint motion (DuC) on sustainable urbanization

Natural materials are used on the ground: A continuous surface of white gravel contrasts with dark blocks of Basalt, which enclose the garden, forming a small wall. As a reminiscence of the important Chinese symbols “water” and “heaven”, “Heavenly Drops” are installed in the garden: shallow blue glass bowls collect the rain and form small water ponds – mirrors of heaven – that are illuminated at night. Together with a fine mist of water, these installations create an enchanting atmosphere.
