DY Landscape：In October 2020, Chongqing helt the 3rd the Upper Yangtze River City Flower Art EXPO. Master Garden was one of the eight exhibition sections of the event, with the theme of “Poetic Dwelling among Mountains and Rivers”. Wang Xiangrong was honour to be one of the two invited designers to create a small but very interesting garden.
The master garden was of 20×20 meters, located in the north square of Chongqing Garden Expo Park. The site was a hard ground paved with granite. The exhibition period was 10 days, after which the garden would be dismantled. From the very beginning, the design team decided that this was an assembled garden, with temporary or recyclable materials, simple and reversible structure, which was easy to be build and be removed.
From ancient times to the present, the landscape of Bayu Region has been praised by Chinese literati, leaving behind many concinnity poems, describing the magnificent scenery of piled mountains, running rivers and filled clouds. Therefore, this garden was named “Cloudy Mountain”, in order to reflect the unpredictable mountains and clouds, to show a mysterious atmosphere of cloud wreathed layer upon layer.

Metal mesh was chosen to express this kind of space and mood. Cheap, light, recyclable, it could divide and shape the spaces, while let the spaces transparent. Then the appropriate structure was considered to achieve the desired spatial form, highlighting the artistic quality of the garden, expressing the romantic and poetic atmosphere.

Since the garden is located in the square of the park and couldn’t damage the ground, the whole structure consisted of 21 irregularly distributed steel columns, which connected as a whole at the ground to get the overall stability. It would be easy to move if it should be rebuilt in the future. Ten layers of 40cm or 60cm high metal mesh were hanged on the steel columns, reaching a total height of more than 5 meters. Each layer of mesh was different in plan, superimposed into a complex and organic three-dimensional structure. Layer upon layer of silver metal mesh not only created a “misty” atmosphere for the garden, but also formed an interior space of the garden. On the ground, the water system was winding and the vegetation was luxuriant. There were a few trees in between the metal meshs, enriching the level of spaces. The gravel path guided people stroll through the garden, to experience the blooming flowers and the swaying silvergrass in the sunshine, to appreciate the sparkling water and the reflection of meshs and plants in the pool. Look up, one could see blue sky against the silver mesh with gentle and elegant curve; bending down, one could notice the changing light and shadow cast by the metal mesh on the ground, and experienced the shift of the sun and clouds.

“Cloudy Mountain” is a symbolic garden, which abstractly embodies the mountain, river, cloud and mist, symbolizing the natural geography and climate phenomena in Bashu region. “Cloudy Mountain” is an experiencing garden, in which visitors can feel rich poetic and artistic atmosphere with their own spatial and visual experience. “Cloudy Mountain” is also a temporary exhibition garden. The design considers the convenience of construction, dismantlement and re-construction, the possibility of material reuse and the economic rationality, for saving resources and reducing waste. All materials in the garden can be easily assembled and dismantled, and can be recycled, without damaging the existing ground of the site. Although the garden is small, it is full of blooming lush plants and flowers, presenting a landscape artistically and natural atmosphere, reflecting people’s yearning for the nature.
