Les Jardins de Métis

Result 16th International Garden Festival at the Jardins de Métis / Reford Gardens. Canada

The competition attracted 309 proposals for contemporary gardens submitted by over 700 architects, landscape architects, designers and artists from 34 countries.

“Buzz” is the operative word guiding the 2015 Festival with new creations by designers from Canada, France and Israel. The installations selected by the jury have a special energy and connection to the natural world. The temporary gardens have a degree of interactivity that encourages visitors to enter with enthusiasm. The goal is to intrigue visitors with the unusual or to impress by new ways of presenting what is common.
