At the HSR & ASLA Ideas Workshop, students from the landscape architecture department at the HSR, the University of Applied Sciences Rapperswil, will advise Giardina visitors individually on how to design their own gardens. This year, the Swiss Landscape Architecture Archive (ASLA) will be displaying an extensive collection of works by German landscape architect Leberecht Migge (1881-1935). The exhibition will include unpublished drafts and completely unknown works as well as the original printed plans for many well-known projects.

Today, balconies, small patios and miniature gardens in urban areas are increasingly transforming into oases of green. The urban gardening and urban farming trend also continues unabated. At Giardina 2017, experts will demonstrate how outdoor areas can be designed in a sophisticated way and enjoyed the whole year round. In the balcony gardens and small patios themed area, visitors will find inspiration, plants, products and accessories which turn even the smallest spaces into an ideal place to relax and harvest the fruits of one’s labour. At the central special exhibition on this topic, the garden centres Gartenpflanzen Daepp from Hauenstein and Gärtnerei Schwitter will be presenting a broad range of examples. Balcony designer Kathrin Stengele will display the latest trends.

For her floral works of art, multiple award-winning master florist Olivia Hoffmann draws on a seemingly endless abundance of ideas. Her designs range from richly symbolic creations incorporating everyday components through to large-scale installations. Given that the floral designer always seeks to surprise her audience, visitors to Giardina can certainly look forward to this year’s presentation by Olivia Hoffmann, for which she will combine real flowers with the current trend towards artificial flowers.
