The Garden of Encounters

Proposal for an art intervention on the perimeter of the new Eaux-Vives station in Geneva

The Garden of Encounters is a system of 9 connected biotopes situated behind Lot BC and in the Place Basse. While the first urban biotope is a temporary intervention that accompanies the construction process of the second half of the perimeter, the following eight biotopes will permanently remain on site. Each biotope creates different spaces for citizen´s interaction with other people and/or with the natural environment.
