Lebanon 'The Sunken Garden'

Vladimir Djurovic Landscape Architecture

The Lebanese landscape architect Vladimir Djurovic is known for his poetic works. In his own words, his design of a contemporary Lebanese Garden Cabinet for IGA Berlin 2017 is “a green corridor that exudes a calming effect while leading visitors into the intimacy and cosiness of a sunken garden. Almost all elements of a traditional Lebanese garden are present to bring the atmosphere to life: a fish pond, vines creating shade, the sound of water and tantalising scents.”
