A garden, if wild, emphasises the notion of physical risk taking in nature.
In a time when our relationship with nature has become so controlled that it feels anaesthetised, there is a growing demand for adventure. The “adventurous garden” offers an immersive and direct experience with nature. It is 4×4 vehicle territory, only for pedestrians this time. It is the off-road motocross track for walking racers, a piece of the Dakar Rally devoted to town footwear. The intrepid garden exposes the soil breathing under our feet as it is moving, growing and sometimes crumbling.
