IGF 2006: Hal Ingberg

igf_hal_ingberg.jpgOur last garden video in the International Garden Festival series, Coloured Reflections: Wrapping and Framing Savage Nature is Montreal architect Hal Ingberg‘s simple device for wrapping the forest. It’s a semitransparent triangle that provides an intimate, courtyard-like enclosure that both frames and intensifies the experience of being in the forest. It’s an extraordinary sight these large panels of glass in the middle of the woods. Green, semi opaque and reflective, the structure invites visitors to circle it and admire the various ways that light, and oneself, interacts with it. The video is narrated by the festival’s Artistic Director, Lesley Johnstone. More images after the jump.
