The World Vision Garden

by Flemons Warland Design. The garden focuses on a large reflecting pool, punctuated by two turf domes. One concave, one convex; the sphere is only completed in the reflection. The pool is surrounded by a series of louvered screens that frame the pool, and offer various vistas through the perennial drift planting to the pool.

The garden is a conceptual installation based on the Japanese concept of 'ma' with the spaces between shapes and surfaces being as important as those actualised in material form. It is a study of shape, space and reflection and is intended to be a thought provoking and contemplative piece.

The main aim of the garden is to reflect World Vision's mission of providing life in all its fullness for every child. The dome above the water represents children who have access to life's basics such as water, food, healthcare and education. The dome beneath the water represents those who have not. A world in perfect balance can only be viewed in the reflection.

Key plants include: Deschampsia cespitosa, Miscanthus, Stipa gigantea and Stipa tenuissima. The main planting palette will be restricted to green, white and purple. This is to complement the structures which have a dominant black & orange theme. Orange has been chosen to reflect World Vision's brand.
