The third edition of the Côte d’Azur Garden Festival will run from May 9 to June 11, with the theme this year being ‘Artists’ Gardens’.

In the meantime though, the Principality’s Urban Planning Department has unveiled its floral creation: ‘The reflection of water in the blue infinity’. The creation was made accessible to the public on April 3, and can be found on the sea facing terraces of the Casino.

The designer of the project, Timothée Roche provides his own poetic definition of the creation:

The reflection of infinity
Under the scorching Mediterranean sun, a space takes shape.
Vertical and bushy silhouettes paint the landscape that we discover.
Other shapes, this time geometric and angular, provide an architectural reading of this place.
Colours, reliefs, materials, all different, make up this paradise setting.
In this garden, ideas appear clear and limpid to us like the water that envelops the visitor and softens the temperature of the steep coasts.
Imagine then projecting onto the reflections of a misted glass the foreshadowing of a visit to infinity.
