The Emotion/Feeling of a Futurist Garden...

One of the questions that had been posed to me was, what exactly happens in a Futurist garden? Existing garden styles already have their emotions, like formal gardens which are tranquil journeys.

For me the futurist garden should be highly interactive, lots of layers, lots of rushing around to discover other parts. A futurist garden is more of a fly through, an energising experience which is all about movement and speed. It is the complete juxtaposition of most gardens. Therefore, this should be expressed through the arrangement of the garden itself. The futurist paintings could in fact be layouts for one of their gardens, they are simple and bold enough to do just that.
