Garden of Ideas is a revolutionary concept for experiencing creative practice in the 21st Century. The proposal will provide six ‘black box’ spaces capable of housing large scale interactive artworks from artists such as Dale Chihuly, Pipilotti Rist or Punchdrunk. Weaving around and above these will be a verdant pleasure garden contained in an ETFE dome, providing a climate controlled, landscaped walk between artworks, as well as restaurants and accommodation for visitors. The Garden of Ideas is essentially a re-working of the sculpture garden concept, but instead of sculptural objects it will include the very latest interactive and experiential artworks.
