For public art and architecture collective Legge Lewis Legge, gardens ought to inspire and empower individualism, creativity and mutability. Their Fractal Garden, originally a commissioned work for The International Garden Festival held at Jardins de Metis in Québec, embodies this vision of viewer interaction. The aggregated garden sits in 21 separate steel planters shaped as three variations of rhombi, and are easily tessellated to form an infinite number of arrangements. The different ground plant coverings, each one corresponding to a planter’s geometry, breathe life and variation into the mosaic designs that run the gamut of green shades and hues. Like a life-sized version of the tangram dissection puzzle, the separate components of the Fractal Garden are lifted on casters for mobility, entertaining visitors and encouraging the curious to rearrange the planters. These planters are now available for commercial purchase so that every avid gardener can share in the luxury and variability of an ever-changing landscape. Through its knack for innovation, Legge Lewis Legge offer an assertive, literal take on the typical rolling plains of green.
