“The Majlis Garden is inspired by the sculptural beauty found in arid landscapes, from wind-blown sand dunes and fluvially eroded rock to the manmade hillside terraces and the goat-browsed topiary-esque plants that colonise them. A sand-dune-inspired pavilion is the main destination and provides a calm and contemplative space for young people to meet.

A water source seemingly connects to an oasis-like pool, metaphorically alluding to nature’s ability to find its way around obstacles potentially mirroring people’s ability to innovate and think their way around challenges.

The garden uses materials to evoke a Middle Eastern feel such as white limestone and contrasting burnt Sienna gravel that mimics eroded rock and ferruginous soils often seen in arid locations. Traditional earth rendering techniques have been used to create sand-dune-like shapes.”
