Tribù at Floriade 2012
In Venlo (NL), the 10-annual World Horticultural Expo 2012 took place from 5/4 to 7/10. This ‘theatre of nature’ showcased 66 hectares of the world’s most beautiful flowers, trees and plants , divided in 5 unique theme worlds (Relax&Heal, Green Engine, Education & Innovation, Environment and World Show Stage). More than two million visitors visited this outdoor exhibition.
The Belgian pavilion, designed by Goedefroo Architects, selected Tribù's Mirthe collection to offer a moment of rest to its visitors. The pavilion itself seems to rise out from underneath the earth, as if the environment is cut open and lifted up. The lifted flanks of the roof virtually become the garden. A symbiosis in space is created between an exhibition space and a garden, connected with each other by a green promenade. The difference in altitude makes the garden float in the landscape and offers a magnificient view over the Floriade !
