This massive projects contains over 65 tons of earth which form the basic structure of the Regenerative Garden, a winning design by Nicolas Godelet for the Belgian Pavilijon at Floriade 2022. Floriade is a world horticultural exhibition that takes place in the Netherlands only once a decade. It is the 7th time that the exhibition is held in the Netherlands, this time in Almere. The Regenerative Garden is a geometrical and natural project that reflects Belgian gardens. The pavilion’s architecture is designed to minimise its environmental impact. Each material chosen is fully reusable or degradable, low-carbon, regenerable and natural: earth, wood, hemp, naturally compostable bioplastic, all these materials will be reused or recycled at the end of the exhibition.
