Nu comme "VERT". [I spy]

It is a sublime and peculiar vibe you depict when you’re walking along the streets of Montreal. The city is bustling with silhouettes; People of all shapes, sizes, and colors are walking up or walking down, standing still or moving fast… A fantastic non-rehearsed theatrical display! The only thing you need to do in order to enjoy the free show, is to be there and to sit and watch!

“Nu Comme VERT
, explores this idea of mild voyeurism in an avant-garde cosmopolitan city like the city of Montreal. The garden is a representation of the everyday life experience you get spending a few minutes in a park, on a street, in a laneway, or by your window.

Your interactive promenade in the garden will move you through a somewhat natural setting to a more urbane one where someone is always being watched with avid green eyes, others are just glazed at with a mere glance, and guess what! Whether you admit it or not, you are always watching someone.

You will be seen!
You will glance!
You will become the voyeur!


Jardin Nu comme “VERT” is a garden I helped design for WAA as part of the International Flora Montreal 2006 exhibition. If you are in town and feel like experiencing something interesting and different, pass by the Flora site down at the Old Port of Montreal (Vieux Port) and you will be able to savor a multitude of concepts, ideas and avant-garde designs for all sorts of gardens (roof, backyards, city …).

These gardens, designed by top Canadian Landscape Architecture firms, will be available and displayed for the public until October 9th of 2006.
