Garden

Designed by the landscape architect Gilles Clément, the garden embodies exoticism through the proliferation of vegetation. Vales, footpaths and ponds invite the visitor to leave the urban world and to meditate, the first step towards the discovery of the collections. At dusk, the garden is lit up by “L’O”, an installation of fluorescent tubes, created by the light artist Yann Kersalé.
