Le Jardin du troisième train > French-German Garden of Peace, 2018

In the Compiègne forest, the Armistice Glade is an important site of the First World War. On the 11th November 1918 the armistice was signed in a railway carriage, which has since become world famous. Le Jardin du troisième train was designed by landscape gardener Marc Blume, artist Gilles Brusset and architect Francesca Liggieri. This Franco-German team has landscaped the pathway that leads from the car park to the clearing, making it a memorable access to the site. Beneath the undergrowth, the three designers have made a symbolic  representation of the trench layout of the Great War like the filaments of the mycelian network which can be found on the forest floor. In a similar way the paths of the garden progress in a sinuous form under the foliage, separating the cultivated areas in which the wooded parts are highlighted. This network of paths is an invitation to discover the undergrowth. There is also a long low bench, which encourages contemplation; it has dozens of mirrors attached to it and its horizontal crosses the shaded place,  this reflects the sky and the foliage in the image of a third train, the train of peace.
