Avant Garden Spring maintenance
To build a garden is to undertake a never-ending process. It is the way
in which each one of us perceives and experiences the garden that which
lends it its shape.
In November 2007 atelier le balto (www.lebalto-archipelago.eu
) built Avant Garden, a garden located
between the Paseo de la Chopera and Matadero Madrid building which
houses Intermediae. Avant Garden has the qualities of a wild rose garden. It is a garden
shared by visitors, creators, passers-by... and a place for
co-existence and exchange, as well as for learning, enjoyment and rest.
The arrival of Spring marks the beginning of new season of garden maintenance activities at this extraordinary place.
