Haus im Park 2016

Intraregionale, Hannover Langenhagen

temporary art in landscape

In the park of Langenhagen a house emerges from the adjacent housing estate. Uprooted from the local settlement structure it stranded here. It is the fulfilling dream: a house in a park. 
The arrangement of trees, meadows and flowers is a calculated design. Extensive paths offer alternating views of open landscapes, fields, orchards and natural water courses. It is the walkable picture of the ideal landscape. 
Quite a few quotations of ancient Greek architecture are placed on the horizon in English gardens. Built on a smaller scale, they are an illusion of landscape depth. These artificial structures, including this house, are not intended for use. Rather, they assure the philosophical and cultural roots of a society.
