Don’t Tell The Babylonians But Germany Just Raised The Bar On Hanging Gardens.
Spring has finally arrived (in some parts of the world, anyway) and London-based artist Rebecca Louise Law has created something incredible to celebrate.
In the atrium of German Bikini Berlin, Law has placed 30,000 live flowers, suspended from the ceiling to create a mind-blowing hanging garden for visitors to enjoy. The deconstructed flowers were donated to the artist, and Law arranged the flowers in such a way that they would dry over time and still look as beautiful as ever.
“The installation is designed to be an inviting, enchanting celebration of the outdoors and of spring color,” said Law. “We decided to name the sculpture simply, ‘Garten’ the German word for garden, in keeping with the simple, understated post-war design statement made by the Bikini Berlin building itself.”
It's hard to believe that over 30,000 flowers are included in this breathtaking arrangement.
Seen from above, it's even more impressive.
Can you imagine the fragrances wafting through this building at any given time?
The flowers in Law's "Garten" will be open for viewing by the public until May 1, 2016.
