Andrew van Egmond：一座城市花园，落在从前的圩田区，与周边村庄一起生长着、茂盛着。以围篱为基础的设计，找回了一点场所的原始情感。
Andrew van Egmond：A garden in a urban area. Villages grown together in an area where there used to be polders. The polders are the basis for the design. Bringing back a bit of the original emotion of the place.
This garden is fully grounded in the surroundings polders. Big parts of The Netherlands are polders. A delta-landscape of marshes turned into polders. Its where the Dutch are famous for.
The older polders are smaller in size, the newer ones very big in scale. But big or small most of the time they have the same characteristic. Dramatic skies and an composition of horizontal lines.
A ritme of water lines, higher grass edges along the waterlines and meadows cut in different intervals with tree lines of Willows, Alder and Popler in the back ground. Its actually a industrial landscape for small and big scale farming but especially the small scale polder have romantic and poetic qualities.
These green landscapes capture the elements in a dramatic way. Wind is a prevailing factor. But also rain, sun and mist are often captured in a dramatic and poetic way. These are the polders where the Dutch identify them selfs with and are very important for the collective identity of the Dutch society.
All these qualities are integrated in the garden desing for this garden. Although there are no direct views on the landscape because it is part of the village grid there is this important sense of place.
I believe we all take the underlaying landscape with us in a subconscious way. Therefore it is important to work with the underlaying landscape. It creates a natural ease for us as humans and strengthens the local ecosystem where we are all part of.
This garden desing is dominated by green tones and different kind of up-going grasses. A composition of lines of green and water with floating element above it. The characteristics of the industrial landscape are visible in the concrete elements and rusted / Cor-Ten steel surfaces.
Details are crucial in minimal designs. Because there is no distraction the composition and the refinement has to be good. The floating concrete terraces and the edges along the water surface and the border in the background are laser sharp and create a beautiful contrast with the lush green of grasses, grey leaved willow and the white trunks of Birch trees which are relicts from the formal garden.
The Cor-Ten steel surface creates a strong line framing the ever changing and moving nature in the background. This Surface has a special graphic integrated. The graphic represents reeds in the ditches in the polders therefor emphasising the emotion of the polder even more.
In my work the underlaying landscape is key. With a ever growing urban grid it is important to stay connected to the original landscape and nature as a whole. We have to work with nature, not push it out but embrace it, learn from it and immerse in it.
