Miquel Martí i Pol Gardens, 22@, Barcelona
Garden of the Museum Can Framis. A sea of ivy covering flower bulbs which burst into a symphony of colour to accompany the museum. The bulbs flower in a monochrome pentagram according to the season of the year (the week of the white flowers, the red week, blue, violet, etc.).
A deliberately old-style garden, where vegetation will play the leading and not the secondary role. A natural haven, a chunk of nature within the city, in clear contrast to the surroundings. A somewhat windswept look, hardly mapped out, with narrow and winding paths and metallic green street furniture which evokes the past, with a certain air of melancholy, in tune with the building.
The garden, slightly sunken and with dunes (waves) which screen it from street level, and its masses of flora (ivy, grasses, flowers and trees) become an oasis of silence and calm'akin to being in the middle of a forest. An out-of-touch visitor will think that the garden has always been there, the backdrop to Can Framis.
