Study of the different areas of the garden as defined by planting

This sketch is part of a set of sketches in the Archive of the Project and Works Service [i], which reveals the process followed during the preliminary draft phase. 

This study represents the different areas of the garden defined by the planting, within the programme’s constraints and according to the concept presented by the landscape architects. It is the development of another sketch in which the role of planting, as an element of spatial construction is studied.  This sketch shows that the design process developed by the landscape architects was essentially based on the definition of ambiences and spatiality rather than that of shapes.
