The Kinetic Garden is located in the heart of Brera district in Milan. Piuarch used pallets to create triangular flower beds and flooring containing four plant species, including two varieties of salad in red and green colors and orange and blue pansies. The plants are arranged in repetitive straight lines, defining strips of color that create an interesting chromatic effect.

The arrangement of plants aims to create a sense of dynamism reminiscent of Diez’s artworks. The team worked with Vivai Mandelli andlandscape architectCornelius Gavril to conceptualize and construct the design. This isn’t the first time Piuarch has collaborated with Cornelius Gavril. They teamed up a couple of years ago to fill an entire gallery space with suspended Japanese-style kokedamas.
