The Garden of Encounters

Competition for an artistic intervention on the perimeter of the new Eaux-Vives station in Geneva.

The Garden of Encounters that we proposed for the art intervention competition in Eaux-Vives train station 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 remain on site permanently. Each biotope creates a different space for citizens' interactions with other people and/or with the natural environment.
