land art project Urban Oasis
I planned a quay devoid of decorations - only two elementary benches, from which one can undergo the exuberance of the Swamp Cypress trees - the natural element as a warm contrast for the cool geometry from where they are observed. Such intentions are not always felt by the department heads who furnish the public spaces in a town. So plant containers and a yellow trash can were added to the scene. In my view, the pedestrians and the ducks should be the only temporary 'decoration'.
The red is RAL 2002, a vermillion-like color, which is a natural contrast with the summer color of the Swamp Cypress trees and the green slopes. In the autumn this color harmonizes with the orange-brown foliage of the Swamp Cypresses.
