Jardin de la Connaissance

By introducing the book as a material in the formation of spatial elements within the landscape, Jardin de la Connaissance, a project by Thilo Folkerts and Rodney Latourelle for the International Festival des Jardins de Metis (Quebec), Canada, offers an evocative cultural frame to examine transformational processes inherent in the nature of the forest. Walls, benches and floors made of used books structure a series of rooms at once framing and dissolving into their environment (approximately 40,000 books were used). Full article here.
