Südpark - Construction Site D, Basel
The central area of the grounds, the Ahornhof, is a courtyard of artificial character. It picturesquely reproduces a naturally ocurring section of vegetation from Japanese maple forests. Its functionality allows it to be experienced and appreciated by visitors.
The selection of exotic plants contrasts with the locally sourced ground cover. The light, native pebbles discreetly complement the dark, humic vegetation and immerse the plant beds in a familiar surrounding.
