Contemporary Japanese Garden in London, U.K by MyLandscapes LTD

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Article source: MyLandscapes LTD

The 250sqm site runs east to west and is surrounded by two buildings, a perimeter wall and open on the western side. Initially the ground was pretty level and laid to paving blocks, allowing access to the buildings but serving not much purpose and fairly static. The project took 3 months to build during the wettest winter in the British Isles at a cost of £140,000.

Hard to assess in urban term, the river claims the birth of the city while staying detached from it by its particular identity: ubiquitous as a spine, yet barely passable by inhabitants. Inserted in the Thames, undefined as a plot (central but distant), the drifting island embodies a favored observatory by proposing an alternative reality of London. Visitors are given the chance to experience and sense water in an elaborated architecture that merges and exchanges with its environment, like any living organism would unassumingly do.
