FLOWER STREET

Walking alongside the River Seine with street vendors and cafes aplenty you know you are in Paris. But keep on strolling and you will come across a row of florists. The plants on offer, take over the pavements and transport the walker to another place.

Once the trading day comes to a close and the plants are transported away, the street reverts back to its original Parisian state until the following morning. It is the dynamic transformation, which is exciting. Adding or subtracting the vegetation very quickly changes the atmosphere, without it even being designed too. It is a Secret Garden through circumstance: the need to sell and display wears.
