Location: Schönbodenstrasse 9, 8640 Rapp
Architect in Charge: Enea Garden Design
From the architect. Landscape "artist" Enzo Enea recently completed the Tree Museum in Rapperswil-Jona, Switzerland, right next to the brand new headquarters for Enea Garden Design designed by Miami based Oppenheim Architecture + Design (more on that soon!).
The museum includes 50 different species on the site of a 14th century monastery, some of them 130 years old. These have been collected by Enzo himself for the past 17 years, sometimes rescuing trees threatened by construction or urban expansion. The collection includes over 2,000 species on an adjacent 2.5 acre park.
A delicate landscape work, using a series of local sandstone walls which frame the trees and generate zen like spaces to contemplate the beauty of the "exhibit".
