The innovator, the author of the most interesting architectural forms and solutions, Anouk Vogel presented the project "Cacticity" - a garden-installation of nine hundred cacti of different heights.
The project by the Dutch designer was first presented in 2009 as part of the city garden festival Bilbao Jardín, held in Bilbao, Spain. A living sculptural composition, consisting of nine hundred cacti of the same species (Cleistocactus straussii), but of different heights (from 10 centimeters to one meter), was temporarily placed in front of the entrance to the city's Fine Arts Museum.
According to the author's idea, the cacti were arranged in such a way that they represented a kind of wavy carpet. It was this green installation by Vogel that won the honorable first place at the festival, surpassing twenty-six projects of other landscape designers.
Architect and designer Anouk Vogel was born in 1977 in Switzerland. Studied in Great Britain. In 2001, she graduated with honors from one of the country's leading universities - the Metropolitan University of Manchester. After completing her studies, Vogel moved to the Netherlands, where she lives and works to this day.
In 2009, Vogel's work won first place in a park furniture competition for the famous Amsterdam Vondelpark. A year later, Vogel was awarded the prestigious Prix de Rome prize for architecture. In addition to creativity, Anouk often gives lectures both in the Netherlands and abroad.
Another notable project by Anuk Vogel is also related to plants. Folding for Peace is the name of her installation of hundreds of paper flowers. The extraordinary snow-white splendor could be admired in Nagasaki (Japan) as part of the Gardening World Cup exhibition.
