Anthropogarden is a reflection on the unprecedented moment we have reached, where humans now arguably change the Earth and its processes more than all other natural forces combined, the so-called Anthropocene geological epoch.
The project aims to convey, in a provocative way, that the recreational aspect must now coexist with the ethical and ecological dimensions we envision for the Garden of the Future. Humanity's ability to shift our planet’s balance, represented by the large suspended stone, is not just a matter of control but also a collective responsibility. Furthermore, interacting and descending to an underground circular space, accessible through two ramps, allows the experience of becoming aware that we have so profoundly modified the planet we inhabit, even and especially where it is less visible.

Anthropocene /ˈæn.θrə.pəˌsɪːn/
The most recent period in the earth's history, when
human activities have a very important effect on the
earth's environment and climate


Garden /ˈɡɑː.dən/
A small piece of land (usually near a house) where
vegetables or plants are grown

Stone, wood

Suspended stone.
Fulcrum of the installation, it can be moved easily and represents the impact that man has on the balance of the planet.

The 4 laminated wood supports keep  the cover suspended. 
They, symbolically, derive from Crowford Lake, where some Anthropocene phenomena have recently been well-visible.
