Appreciation towards Ocamica Tudanca arquitectos for providing the following description:


▼鸟瞰花园,aerial view

This place, unaware of our logics, has become a spontaneous garden by its own means. Instead of denying its own character, or imposing an abstract discourse about any other quality of the space, we believe the intervention should serve to enhance the garden itself. We claim the reprogramming of this space as a collective action. The act of experiencing a garden should go beyond the mere observation. The real perception of a garden can only be experienced and felt through intervention.

▼花园改造前后场景,garden before & after renovation


Making a physical, tangible action allows us to go beyond being mere observers, as we become part of the garden. This makes us aware that our individual actions all leave their footprint behind and contribute to shape the collective spaces we live in.


▼白色卵石铺地&汀步石板,white pebble ground & stepping stones



We understand the garden as a process, not as an end itself. It is intended to be a dialogue between you, the visitor, and the garden.

From the 26th of May to the 25th of November, this will be the temporary garden for the Spanish Pavilion at the Biennale. During this time, the actions of every visitor will breathe life and energy to this forgotten corner. Once the Biennale is over, we will abandon this space again. But the garden will still keep working under its own rules, moving, transforming, eternally becoming, until we come back to rediscover it in the next Biennale. Then, it will be a different garden, it will have grown and evolved. But it will still be the timeless garden.
