French Embassy Gardens in Tokyo

Through this landscape project we try to respect and reinforce native biodiversity of Tokyo. This sculptural Green wall is influenced by The Giant’s Causeway in Ireland
The landscape project develops a real innovative concept with Japanese native plants, including sculptural organic walls where mosses artistically grows on special concrete. The wall rhythm is based on the glass frontage of the embassy. Sempervirens Landscapers won the Tokyo’s French Embassy gardens competition, in association with the French architecture studio which built the Embassy: ADPi (Architects: Dominique Chavanne, Nicolas Moulin, Mabel Miranda).
