Over the period of two years Mexican artist, Gabriel Orozco has worked side by side with UK-based 6a Architects and horticulturists from the royal botanic gardens KEW to complete the project. During the process, Orozco has stepped into new territory and challenged himself by using his artistic experience to revive an unused space.

Originally, the artist reveals a distinct use of concentric circles in his work which is also apparent in the design of the SLG garden. Such an approach brings out the poetic nature of the urban and mundane world.

Gabriel Orozco planned the garden with 6a Architects as a combination of commutable, connected spaces. At first, he configured the ground by creating ‘broken’ concentric patterns that lead the user to various spots  reflecting motion and fluidity.

On the other hand, circular sculptures with different heights and details were injected into the garden for multi-purpose use: sitting, eating, playing, displaying artworks, and planting.

The material used to shape the garden is local york stone laid out in bricks — evoking the victorian style of the South London Gallery.

Influenced by the concept of an ‘urban ruin’, he designed the garden in a way for it to be progressively  invaded by grasses and ground covers – which were chosen under the consultancy of the royal botanic gardens KEW.

Blending the sculptural york stone levels with water will create stillness within a dynamic design.

The garden will be open to the public on weekends and invited guests during the week.
