Jardins surprise- The top 10 gardens of Chaumont-sur-Loire 2008-2010

"The annual competition in the gardens of the Loire chateau of Chaumont has been since 1992 an international meeting of the creative landscape architectural avant-garde - comparable to the Biennale of Visual Arts in Venice or the Festival in Cannes for the world of cinema.”
from Spiegel Online (26.05.2010).

The world-famous garden festival for contemporary garden art guests once again in Bingen, Germany. The 10 selected garden creations have been reproduced true to original last year in the "Kulturufer" park under the patronage of Culture Minister Doris Ahnen. "The gardens were so well received by the visitors, that we decided to extend the exhibition until 2013," resumes Bingen’s Mayor Birgit Collin-Langen. Between May and October 2012, the unusual creations from France (7 gardens) and one garden each from Italy, the Netherlands and Germany can be visited again.

The presented gardens were originally selected from approximately 1000 international submissions for the design competition. Among these was the only German contribution "The colors of the elements" by Stefan Laport, which was presented in Chaumont-sur-Loire in 2009. The garden was then implemented in cooperation with GartenLandschaft Berg, Joachim Wurster Pflanzengroßhandel and H. Lorberg Baumschulerzeugnisse.

Design: Stefan Laport
Implementation: City of Bingen
