Following the completion of HYLLA Alpine Garden, the client and we had the vision of attempting to create a lower maintenance garden with limited design intervention to maximize the restoration of native vegetation on a 3-hectare site to the east of Xupai, away from the buildings. The Wilderness Garden is named after the idea of “allowing plants to grow naturally or at will”. In the efforts to understand and explore the complete life cycle of the landscape, we expected a faithful record of the garden in the time of a year through its vicissitude. Through the changes, we would witness the sprouting of life and observe the withering of it as well. We praise its luxuriant and prosperous appearance but also feel the sorrow of its falling and death. Based on an understanding of the life cycle of the site, people could appreciate the beauty of four seasons and nature as a living picture where it reproduces, changes and renews in its on rhythm.
