‘Botanical garden in Petrozavodsk’


The place is clearly structured as a thought-out collection, each spot representing a certain plant type (‘shadow garden’ shown above, ‘sun garden’ below), area or activity.

The garden demonstrates interesting strategies in showing non-natural objects: the garden signs are clearly visible and meant to be seen; the gardening equipment which had to be placed on the territory for visitors was clearly meant to be ‘disregarded’ by the audience
