CBK Sculptural Garden
1992, Dordrecht, The Netherlands
The Centre of the Arts in Dordrecht needed an open-air exhibition space. West 8 designed for this purpose a sculptural garden encircling the centre that even involves one of the roofs. Six meter high fences enclose the garden, creating intimate cabinets. Wisteria and black locust were planted to cover the fences. The exhibition space on the roof can be reached by a lift ladder. The garden terrace is made of steel sheet coming from old vessels, emphasising the naval character of Dordrecht.
