The Design Concept……………….RHS Chelsea Flower Show

This is the first year that smart phone technology has been utilised at the Chelsea Flower Show .
The focal point of the garden is a large QR (Quick Response) code, created from a wall of vertical planting. The space references the formal garden traditions through the use of sharp geometric form and clipped topiary, but is brought into the present day through the engagement with this exciting new way of accessing virtual information.
The clean, bold lines of the QR Code graphic are mirrored throughout the garden, in the tranquil reflective pool of water beneath the QR Code wall and across the horizontal garden in the sculptural Perspex boxes.
The QR Code Garden will be exhibited within the new Fresh Garden category at Chelsea Flower Show, a category that will be showcasing experimental and innovative design concepts and a creative use of materials.
The visitor can hold their smart phone up to the living wall and be transported to The QR Code Garden website that gives further information on the project
