Lille Métropole 2020 World Design Capital

The Chlorophyll Garden has existed for over twenty years in Roubaix. It is an urban nature education ecosystem which shelters different wild spaces.

The idea is about creating a journey through its different universes as you go through a collection of short stories, different from each other, but intimately linked. Each space must be an invitation to discovery, immersion and well-being : the orchard, the forest, the animal village, the permaculture mandala, the experimental greenhouse, the aromatic and edible wild plants, the pond, the labyrinth, the fun course, the flowery meadow and the house. The Garden itself becomes an actor : in a form of mutual listening between the garden and the visitor.
