Project The Diagonal
Program Parks & Public gardens
Location Tripoli - Lebanon
Completion 2007
Area 17,000 m2
Modelled along a modern approach, the garden is kept dynamic by a 45 degree angle shift in its primary axis that continues diagonally throughout the site and marks its two principal entry points. At the center of the garden, a land depression, surmounted by a bridge and flanked by two amphitheaters, follows a template of five rectangles divided by walkways leading up to ten thematic gardens; five of which are "senses" gardens, each planted with a particular sense in mind.
