Small Park, Geneva, Switzerland

I discovered this little park by chance. Last summer, I spotted the mist whilst waiting for a tram and just had enough time to take these photos before my tram arrived.  The misters are fitted into the angled cor-ten posts and are on timers giving the garden a misty romantic feel.  The water reflecting on the cor-ten paving really brings out the rich rust colour.  The prairie-style planting combined with the industrial nature of the hard materials gives a lovely contrast.  It feels almost like an abandoned industrial area that has been reclamed by nature. The Landscape Architects are Paris based Agence Ter.
