as well as the stone to the house and the house to the city, as well as the plant to the tree and the tree to the forest, and so with the whole world.
The nature inside, the artifice around: the contemporary garden. The project consists of a simple yet radical and foundational operation: delimiting a portion of nature to make it an interior elevating it in poetry from the rest of the natural world. A block of stone cut into four parts holds the portion. The fruition is denied, the distance between the blocks does not allow to pass, the relationship with the inside becomes even stronger. A space denied is a space desired/to be conquered. Maintenance is entrusted to the bees, the wind, the rain, the sun; believing strongly that the best possible sustainability is the one that combines the protection of resources and ethical respect for all forms of biodiversity. Indeed, the exuberance and richness of nature within the monolith is no different from any other anonymous piece of the natural world. The colors, sounds and diversity inside appear as revelation to man for the contrast with the monochromy, the silence and the irreproachability of the stone: the motionless geometry of the building allows nature to be perceived by man.
