Jardin Éphémère


Green Roofs

Project Name Jardin Éphémère Location Paris, France Year 2016
Architect Michel Péna Owner/Builder Institut du Monde Arabe

General Description:

This project situated inside the prestigious Institut du Monde Arabe was part of the 2016 exposition Jardins d’Orient. The garden was imagined by landscaper Michel Péna, who successfully transformed a concrete space into a haven of freshness and green. In addition, the spectacular vegetal anamorphous designed by the architect François Abélanet captivated the space with its star floating shape.

Why Expanded Clay:

Expanded clay was used as a drainage layer beneath the substrate and was used due to its ability to retain in the garden.

Key benefits:

The blowing of the granulates made it possible to place the expanded clay rapidly despite the space constraints.
