Gardens for the future
The garden is the future, thinking about how to design it effectively is the focus of the Biennale to offer our contribution to the current international debate on the need to increase the presence of plants, bring nature closer to us and make it an essential element of livability for urban contexts. Putting the garden and the landscape at the centre of future planning is already the real challenge for the future.
Green environments are recognized as effective and necessary resources, as also foreseen by the International Year of Plant Health promoted by the FAO which aims to raise global awareness on how protecting plant health can help end hunger, reducing poverty, protecting the environment and boosting economic development.
The gardens are therefore able to provide food, repair and protect from harmful elements, becoming healing elements, as well as a source of refreshment and tranquility. Have young designers been asked to reflect on what will be the functions of the garden in the near future? How will they repair environmental failures? Be an additional food resource? What role will be assigned to plants? And what will be the gardens
