#510: 666L Aquatic Garden Infinity

Albert Escrihuela Cáceres Valencia, Spain


A vicious circle.
I see a very dynamic and exciting spiral.
The structure is a fusion of stone and wood.
I like the energy and creative concept it is extraordinary and even unique.
Unfortunately there are some aspects that bother me.
The planting looks very restless and inconsistent. In addition it obscures the hardscape in some places where it might have been better left uncovered.
The structure is so firmly cemented with stones that the wood loses some of its effect. The wood also looks very fresh. The red and orange tones make for a rather uncomfortable color palette.
The background appears to be only partially lit. I see a very bright gap while the rest of the glass panel is dark. I guess that is intentional but looks strange and artificial to me.
Despite of these facts the basic idea is excellent and the only reason I have expressed my criticism so extensively is that I liked it so much.
I hope you can follow my reasoning.
