Congress Roof Garden

A grid defined by the paths – concrete slabs – is combined with an organic design defined by herbaceous plants, which reinforce the design with color and texture.

The options taken with regard to the design of this garden clearly reveal how the landscape architects had in mind that it was to be viewed from above, from the interior of the building.

The design of this roof garden should be read in relation to the roof garden of the Temporary Exhibitions Gallery and the Grand Auditorium.
