ACT wins International Garden Festival

Active City Transformation wins the International Garden Festival, Ponte de Lima in Portugal.
The proposal “Taste The Slope focuses on the connection between the cultivation of food, the eating of them and physical activity. The project strives to create a more meaningful public understanding about the food we grow and eat.

The idea behind the design is to create a terraced garden, built up from different boxes, steps and platforms. The platforms are distributed among the vegetation, varying in size and height, so that different sizes of groups can occupy the garden, for example, couples, families and classes. This also allows visitors to become an integrated portion of the garden. Both visually and symbolically they become equal, surrounding each other, having to care for each other.
