'RELATIVITY' is a show garden displayed at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show.
The Garden demonstrated the use of green roofs and vertical gardens within a domestic outdoor space.
The spacial component of the garden was inspired by Dutch artist MC Escher’s work “Relativity” where the image depicts a paradoxical world in which the normal laws of gravity do not apply.
In a traditional landscape plant material would be presented on a horizontal plane ﬁrmly anchored to the ground, however with vertical and roof gardens these planting constraints disappear and we are allowed to explore other planes of reference.
Combining the use of water, lush folaige and natural materials using basic principles in permaculture created an incredibly calming and luxurious space that is sustainable and positive to the environment in today’s world.
