Christlicher Garten

© Grit Schwerdtfeger, LUX Fotografen

The “Christlicher Garten” (“Christian Garden”) belongs to the “Gardens of the World” within the wellness park Berlin-Marzahn. Its shape symbolizes a cloister’s walkway imposed on a quadratic plan layout, surrounded by an orthogonal colonnade. For the design of the pergola the landscape architects were looking for a minimal load bearing structure that would integrate the letters of Christian quotes on the walls and ceilings. The result was a spatial frame structure made of aluminum castings, in which the envelope and letters create the load bearing unit. The individual casting segments are connected through welds, screws, and bolts.
