Research and proposal for a temporary public artwork in Nagele (Noordoostpolder, NL).  Model (work in progress).

 

The Garden of Contested Meanings is a temporary architectonic installation in the modernistic village of Nagele (noordoostpolder). The pavilion encloses an idealized wild garden designed in the combined traditions of European Romanticism, Chinese San Shui paintings and Japanese gardens. The shape of the pavilion, a tilted cubic volume which surfaces all run parallel to each-other, is reminiscent of the first axonometric drawings by Theo van Doesburg and Cornelis van Eesteren, the latter having played a leading role in the design of Nagele in the 1950’s. The garden itself, meant to be viewed from one specific vantage point, is also build according to the principles of axonometric perspective resulting in a peculiar spatial and optical effect: the landscape seems to be seen from a birds eye view, giving the spectator the feeling of floating above a distant nature.
