Interview at the Museum of Copenhagen, 2014
Designed for the Museum of Copenhagen’s Urban Nature exhibition, the museum’s flat, grass covered backyard was transformed into a space of varied levels and outdoor rooms, connected by a flowing path and surrounded by layered plantings that provide nourishment and space for people as well as pollinators.
Intersections is about the encounter between nature and culture, and the movements and negotiations between the two. The space transitions from a cultivated and ordered garden to gradually transforming into something more wild and natural. This is symbolized by the choice of fruiting trees, berries and vines in the first section, and perennial plantings for bees and pollinators in the other. The garden is both a place for contemplation as well as a space that offers the opportunity to reflect on biodiversity and balance with nature.
