Jardin du Tiers-Paysage

Gilles Clément

The "Jardin du Tiers-Paysage" is a triptych which takes advantage of the three architectural devices of the site:"The Wood of Aspen" placed in "les chambres d'éclatement des bombes" in 2009, the "Garden of Grasses and Stonecrap" in "The Covered Rows" and "The Label Garden" in the Pit .

Appearing suddenly from the concrete of the base, 107 aspens with bright leaves sway in the wind. Having the base to scintillate and quiver is the first intention - poetic intention- of Gilles Clément, who sees in the base a place of resistance, where the ecological diversity of the estuary can reside in.
