The AIPH Community Garden, 2018 Taichung World Flora Exposition

Client The International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH)

The design concept for the AIPH Community Garden is based on a combination of various functions: sustainability, ecology, landscape and air quality improvement. It demonstrates how green spaces in cities improve the environment, social life and health of urban communities, and focuses on what green spaces can do for these communities, most of whom live in apartments without access to their own garden or outdoor space.

The green space spans 660m2 and includes seventeen ornamental and eight fruit trees (an orchard), vertical gardens, raised edible planting beds, an eco-friendly natural pond, a green roof, a rain garden, permeable pathways, solar panels, a planted table with an aquaponics (sustainable farming) system, insect hotels, outdoor gym equipment and native local plants.
