Since 1997, Lausanne Jardins has repeated itself every five years throughout the summer. From 15 June to 12 October 2019, Lausanne Jardins will explore the theme of open ground, delving into the rare urban spaces that have not been layered with concrete or tarmacked and that have remained connected to the ground below. Lausanne Jardins provides an opportunity to stop and rethink the city.
The visual identity of this edition is centred around the root system of a tree, a key element in need of open ground, and a symbol of appropriation of space. The 31 gardens are accompanied by a signage system that informs the visitor. Other visual elements include a festival map, a roadbook, a tote bag, posters, flags, a bus, and many more.
