Anouk Vogel: Folding for Peace

Swiss landscape architect Anouk Vogel created this amazing paper garden for an exhibition commissioned by the Gardening World Cup in Nakasaki, Japan. The installation titled "Folding for Peace" was inspired by an ancient Japanese legend which promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish, such as long life or recovery from illness. The garden is the physical remain of a wish for world peace. All the plants that compose the garden are folded out of white paper.
