The gardens of the Tuileries in Paris were imagined by Queen Catherine de Medici. Already in the sixteenth century, the inhabitants of the capital felt the need to be quiet among the flowers. From Friday 7 to Sunday 9 June, landscapers installed temporary gardens in the Tuileries, an opportunity to enjoy this green haven for city dwellers. Shapes, colors, runoff from the water, everything is done to forget a galloping urbanism.
55% of the world's population is urban
A vital issue since 55% of the world's population lives in cities today. "The city of tomorrow can only be livable if we have islands of greenery that will reduce temperatures (…), which will absorb rainwater.", says Pierre-Alexandre Rissier, landscaper. In France, 20 million homes have a garden or terrace. Each in their own way, they contribute to the preservation of the planet.
