Castle Park Wolfsburg
Based on principles of the English landscape garden, the design of Schlosspark Wolfsburg corresponds to a moving picture. The movement is one through the picture, through the garden, however - created by the observer himself. New areas and new sceneries were added to the historic landscape-garden plot. In the wetland-area pedestrian circulation was carefully improved by adding a wooden walkway, horse-meadows were made publicly accessible. A newly laid out path leads through the extended park. The circular gardens as new sceneries along the general plot offer a constantly changing perception of space. The three new circular gardens - Sculpture, Rose, Forest - are each mounted with polished stainless steel. They fit into the historic landscape as reflecting objects and serve as a contemporary interpretation of an element typical of traditional landscape gardens of the 18th and 19th centuries: the folly.
