Gardens of the World, Berlin-Marzahn

Koppel-meadows and southern extension

Through expansion of the Gardens of the world to the south green spaces were developed which were inspired in its character by the surroundings. The mesic-moist areas at Marzahn-Hellersdorf-Brook, a small tributary valley of the Wuhle brook were maintained as extensive meadows after integration into the park. In this way it has been suggestive of a new spatial view for the first time. Interspatial tension is created by diversified fragmented gardens within a spacious landscape. This situation was picked up and accentuated by only a few design elements. A boardwalk is leading over the marsh area to experience the manifold flora and nature-like habitats.

Through realignment of the area it was possible for the first time since opening in 1987 to plan a new entrance. It was aimed to integrate the gardens of the world into the new urban quarters in establishing a new and attractive park entrance in the south. The wooden deck is opening to the „Koppelpfuhl“ (puddle) and allows a vast view into the meadows. The terrace including its adjacent spaces can also be used for different events.
