- 16th International Garden Festival in Quebec Canada
The International Garden Festival is the biggest event for contemporary gardens in North America and since it first started out in 2000 it has presented more than 150 gardens in the “Jardins de Métis” also known as the Reford Gardens, a national historic and heritage-listed site located on the St. Lawrence river.
This is a perfect backdrop for the new landscape architecture design and art proposals.
The six submissions selected by the jury have been installed and can be visited until 27 September. “Around-About” by Talmon Biran architecture studio [Roy Talmon & Noa Biran], Tel Aviv, Israel; “Carré bleu sur fond blanc” by Kihan Kim & Ophélie Bouvet, Paris, France; “I like to move it” by DIXNEUFCENTQUATREVINGTSIX Architecture [Mathilde Gaudemet & Arthur Ozenne], Paris, France; “Popple” by Meaghan Hunter & Suzy Melo, Winnipeg (Manitoba) Canada; “Se mouiller (la belle échappée)” by Groupe A / Annexe U [Jean-François Laroche, Rémi Morency, Érick Rivard & Maxime Rousseau], Québec (Québec) Canada; and Pete North and his master’s degree students in landscape architecture at the University of Toronto who created Macro / Micro / Myco, a garden that explores the various scales of flora around us.
All the installations invite visitors - old and young alike - to explore them, and showcase the variety of the contemporary landscaping design scene.
