Jüdischer Garten, Berlin

Show project on map

The term „Jewish Garden“ suggests an association with the Garden of Eden, the lush green paradise. However, there is a deep gap between this archetypal picture and the real state of Jewish culture.


Surrounded by the lush greenery of the Gardens of the World, the Jewish Garden, framed by high walls, is housed in a box. Entering the garden through the opening in the wall, the plants inside, contrasting with the green of the environment, show rather pale colors. They grow in the grit bed as randomly settled by self-sowing. The design concept consists of a reference structure of various content-related topics and thus reaches the visitors of the garden on different levels.
