LANDEZINE INTERNATIONAL LANDSCAPE AWARD 2020
2020 Ex Aequo Winner in Gardens category:
Ellipse Garden by Kjeld Slot Havearkitekt, Denmark
The jury recognized the tension and the atmospheric density that was achieved by well-known tools of garden design. The use of historic structures successfully establishes different ambiences and opens views that change the perception of the space, orientation and the scale of this relatively small plot. The garden was designed to catch changing seasons and light and synthesize them into a dramatic display of change. Ellipse garden is also a gardener’s laboratory, and reflects the joy in cultivating, playing and experimenting with plants and their characteristics.
