We all know that countries like Syria are now suffering from the effects of war. We are all more aware of how fragile life is, and how quickly it can change. “Amity” is a garden that reflects the hope that humanity will prevail and that friendship and family links will be stronger, overcoming all the differences. Inspired by traditional Arabian courtyards, the garden is an open space, for the enjoyment of the senses, surrounded by perfumes, the sound of water flowing, and above all where family and friends can meet.
