Jardins de Babylone produced an unexpected design at the 10th ‘Jardins Jardin’ exhibition in Tuileries Garden. Amaury Gallon exhibited a “bamboo tree,” the tree of life or the baobab, the bearer of meaning. It was placed in the centre of a charming exotic garden and was one of the most successful works at the exhibition.
It had a number of features:
It was positioned in an exotic garden measuring 50 m².
An atmosphere bringing creating a sense of calm, relaxation, observation and savouring the present moment.
Fully self-supporting and removable structure.
The tree was 2.9 m high.
220 canes each 3m long, i.e. 4,400 pieces of bamboo ranging from 10 to 45 cm in length.
The heart of the feature included Phyllostachys, ferns, a banana tree, Dicksonia ferns and moss.
140 hours of expert labour was required to complete the assembly.
