We understand the garden as a place where the diversity of Lausanne takes place. A flowerpot prototype where the varieties of plants planted according with the origin of Lausanne people grow up together. International Biodiversity for national belonging. A public space uprooted, integrated, aerial and symbolic, a common ground of our origins and our future in the city of Lausanne. A public place of respect where differences are reduced to a single location, on a unique land.

Our design will contribute to the art of the garden by celebrating the idea of a World Table. This becomes a place where people are drawn together — some by choice, others by chance. The inviting nature of the table and its setting delight the senses. This experience is meant for visitors to let their guard down and provoke an interaction with those gathered around the table for serendipitous encounters, or formal, planned events. This project may be constructed for less than $5000 at garden festivals, for parklets, or other events.

Registration opens today to find new design ideas for London’s Royal Docks. The Landscape Institute and Ecobuild, with support from the Mayor of London and London Borough of Newham, have launched ‘The Royal Docks Ideas Competition’ to find innovative design proposals that would transform the Royal Docks into a multi-functional, ‘liveable’ space.
