International garden festival – Chaumont sur Loire (France)

Gardens of thought

Once again, the International Garden Festival of Chaumont-sur-Loire has a whole host of surprising, brand new experiences in store on the concept of thought, the theme of this 27th edition, whose jury was chaired by the writer Jean Echenoz.
These gardens have all been designed by an incredible variety of highly inventive teams, whether referring to the worlds of famous writers, American Indian legends or the Sufi tale of the Conference of the Birds, or physically evoking the paths travelled by our thoughts.
Indeed, the sheer diversity of occupations encompassed by the teams behind these gardens is worth highlighting: this year, landscapers, gardeners, architects and urban planners have worked alongside set designers, directors, graphic designers and even an anthropologist, a geographer, a cabinetmaker and plumassier – all immensely talented and inspired.
Among the treasures this edition will be unveiling are green architectures, real thought “bubbles”, a radically contemporary International Klein Blue Japanese meditation garden, a spectacular red anamorphosis, a sculptural book of sand, an unprecedented spiral architecture, a contemporary cloister decked out with sublime “feather flowers” and delicate kokedama representing your neurons … In a nutshell, a spellbinding combination of ideas, inventions and plant-inspired poetry.
