Pure Land Foundation Garden by Fernando Gonzales at Chelsea Flower Show

June 04, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Just a short post on one of my favourite gardens at Chelsea this year. It offered beautiful naturalistic planting with dominant warm glow russets and golds on white background, a great melange of nature and architecture. I was glad they used Iris 'Pride of Kent', I noticed in the flower Marquee two years ago and loved from the first sight. 

Its technically advanced white structure is made of an innovative material Jasmonite by the state of the art robotic system, it is all about curves and floating organic lines. It does remind me of a famous Park Guell, designed by Antonio Gaudi in Barcelona at the turn of the 20th century, so much more obvious that its designer, Fernando Gonzales is also Spanish. Both combine nature and organically shaped architecture in a seamlessly perfect way, so we cannot see where one starts and the other finishes. A great tradition to follow and revive, creating a unique and fresh garden. Sadly only a Silver Guil, it is all Golden for me! :)
