The garden, a recurring motif in the work of Zurich-based Edelaar Mosayebi Inderbitzin Architects, features prominently in many of their architectural projects as idea, vision, or built space. Garden evokes a gallery-size garden’s intensity and constructedness: an arcane reflection by Edelaar Mosayebi Inderbitzin Architects

Education, Landscape / Urbanism
In their exhibition Garten at Architektur Galerie Berlin in fall 2016, the architects foregrounded that topos and, in collaboration with Swiss landscape designer Daniel Ganz, transformed the gallery space into a living garden. The eponymous booklet features this temporary installation and offers an insight into its making in striking photographs by Jan Bitter and Roland Bernath. Essays by Edelaar Mosayebi Inderbitzin and Stephen Bates and a conversation with the architects by Martin Steinmann explore the meaning of the garden in a selection of their projects also from a historical and theoretical perspective.
