Inside Outside / Petra Blaisse + HGA: 沃克艺术中心是美国顶尖的当代艺术机构之一。新的Wurtele Upper花园是重新定义博物馆主入口、加强与明尼阿波利斯雕塑花园的关系以及创建沃克艺术中心校园这个更大愿景的设计的一部分。植被的覆盖和连接它们的路径增强了入口的开放感,并为参与艺术活动提供了动态体验。重新设计的花园提供了灵活的场地以适应大型公共活动。这座花园提升了沃克艺术中心作为艺术和社会中心的地位。

Inside Outside / Petra Blaisse + HGA: The Walker Art Center is one of the nation’s top contemporary art institutions. The new Wurtele Upper Garden is a part of a larger vision to re-orient the main entry of the museum, strengthen the relationship with the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, and create a Walker Art Center campus. The vegetated volumes and the circuit path that connects them enhance the welcoming entry approach and provide dynamic experiences for engaging art.  The re-imagined garden provides flexible, impromptu programming to accommodate large-scale public events.  The garden reinforces the Walker Art Center’s status as an artistic and social hub.




The current direction of the Walker Arts Center strongly supports the interactive approach with all levels of society (all ages, locals and tourist) and between the different disciplines of Visual Arts, performing arts, film and design. That has resulted in a strong use of the big open field in the past two years. The “open field” has become a physical synonym for that ambition; the sloped site is valued for its openness, flexibility and visibility.



明尼阿波利斯沃克艺术中心的景观设计汇集了各方的努力,旨在提高重要节点的可见性,通过旧的(Barnes)和新的(Herzog & De Meuron)展区和花园进行疏导流通,在大厅中创造灵活的分割和阴影,从内到外吸引人的视线,反之亦然。

The landscape design of the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis is a combined effort to improve visibility of important points, of circulation through the old (Barnes) and the new (Herzog & De Meuron) wings and gardens, to create flexible divisions and shadings in the main hall and to appealing views from inside out and vice versa.




By transforming a sloping open field into an iconic hill; and planting this hill with a scattered series of rectangular tree groupings or ‘vegetal volumes’ with each their own identity, diverse forms of use and experiences are made possible. Connecting points of entrance and exits on all levels to one-another by an energetically shaped path, the new trajectory improves accessibility for all visitors, opens up unexpected views and leads the visitor to the various ‘tree rooms’ where performance, art and learning can be enjoyed in the open air.




Tucked into the existing hillside, the landscape appears to peel up to accommodate the pavilion and reveal a brightly lit, convivial space beneath. Accessible paths now meander through the upper garden through groves of trees and contemporary sculpture, and a green roof over the pavilion offers expansive views of the sculpture garden.
