Living in a garden. Between inside and outside


Rose Chair, (C)Edra

I think living in a garden is one of humanity’s archetypes. And architecture look like it si in its journey to reach the paradise lost.

It seem that in Victorian Times people was obsessed with the observation of nature. In the middle of 1800 years Decimus Burtun designed the Temperate House for  Kew Garden, a glasshouse which it was a engineering & architecture masterpiece . Just think about cement. Burtun was the first architect in UK who used it for building a greenhouse. And then about glass, in those days  it wasn’t so granted. Glasshouses spread throughout in 19 centuries, only  because industry managed to create big slabs for a low price.

Conclusion, even if today tachnology is another matter, for living in a garden there is no way to ignore it. But in all of this architecture has got a special tool to get to the destination: magician tricks. So whatever is the outside that surrounds an house, the inside will be conparable with a shadow zone in a sunny garden. Because everyone has the right to have its own Eden. Elisabetta Guida
