Anouk Vogel: Folding For Peace

Oh, how PRETTY!!

Folding For Peace is a project located in Nagasaki, Japan and realised in 2011 by landscape architect, Anouk Vogel. Comissioned by the Gardening World Cup, Vogel’s project was awarded the Silver Medal & the Special Judges Award at the Festival of Flowers and World Peace.

According to her site:

An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. Inspired by this popular belief, the garden Folding For Peace is the physical remain of a wish for world peace. All the plants that compose the garden are folded out of white paper.
