ROOTED IN CLAY
WY GARDEN IN WINNIPEG, MB

EN_
SEASONAL CHANGING LEVELS, annual floods, ongoing
erosion and high concentrations of red sediment, the Red River in
Winnipeg is a highly dynamic, urban water body. How do designers
deal with this energy on a beautifully situated river plot? The
resulting design for the WY garden is a sensitive response to this
topological context.
The species-rich meadow between house and river offers the
perfect get-away spot for visitors and inhabitants of this garden.
Salvaged wood beams painted in primary colours are placed as
diving boards or picnic blankets in a sea of grasses. In the winter,
the snow nestles between the blades of grass remaining fluffy and
creating a perfect habitat for a wide variety of small mammals and
insects to dig a network of tunnels. The river meadow provides a
pleasant and warm welcome already at the entrance. A generous
outdoor "dining room" with a long table makes for a peaceful
setting. By the way, not a single nail or screw was used. Only
gravity joins beams and boulders, roots and clay.
The WY Garden is an experimental attempt to prove that complex
projects do not need to use vast amounts of resources. Rooted
in Clay is an adventurous experiment in conformance with

FR_
LES FLUCTUATIONS SAISONNIÈRES du niveau de l'eau,
les inondations annuelles, l'érosion continue et les fortes
concentrations de sédiments rouges font de la rivière Rouge, à
Winnipeg, un plan d'eau urbain très dynamique. Comment les
concepteurs gèrent-ils cette énergie sur une parcelle riveraine
magnifiquement située ? La conception du jardin WY qui en
résulte est une réponse sensible à ce contexte topologique.
La prairie riche en espèces entre la maison et la rivière offre
aux visiteurs et aux habitants de ce jardin l'endroit idéal pour
s'évader. Des poutres de bois récupérées peintes en couleurs
primaires sont placées comme tremplins de plongée ou
couvertures de pique-nique dans une mer d'herbes. En hiver,
la neige se niche entre les brins d'herbe qui restent duveteux
et crée un habitat parfait pour une grande variété de petits
mammifères et d'insectes pour creuser un réseau de tunnels.
La prairie riveraine offre un accueil agréable et chaleureux dès
l'entrée. Une généreuse « salle à manger » extérieure avec une
longue table offre un cadre paisible. D'ailleurs, pas un seul clou
ou vis n'a été utilisé. Seule la gravité fait tenir les poutres et les
rochers, les racines et l'argile.
