JARDIN SUMAC GARDEN
WINNIPEG, MB
EN_
THE IDEA OF Sumac Garden is an
empathetic response to a specific
contextual situation. The branches of
mature trees on the lot and neighbouring
properties had formed an expansive
canopy over the area. But a large elm tree
infected with Dutch elm disease had to be
felled, and this created a clearing bathed
in light. We used a simple trick to structure
the space and allow it to develop its own
rhythm. Sumacs love the sunlight. Irregular
hedges of smooth sumac were planted
along the lines of light. These green figures
gather like strange creatures around the
house. They define and separate all the
functional areas without creating barriers
or boundaries. It is a fresh interpretation of
the ancient art of topiary.

" It is philosophical, daring and
fully aware of its power. "
As designers we have to be attentive to the
subtle experiential fabric of everyday life,
while being modest and frugal. In an era of
overexploitation and over-consumption
of the globe's resources, we have to adopt
new design attitudes. This forces a radical
paradigm shift for designers towards a
building culture of improvisation, repairing
and recycling. The innocent garden
remains as an exemplary and powerful
medium to promote a socially, ethically
and ecologically responsible culture in
environmental design practice.
JURY'S COMMENTS
The design represents restraint in every
sense: few design moves, accomplished
with the reuse of existing material and a
2
limited palette of native plants. It cleverly
combines found and collected materials;
sweat equity, with the involvement of the
designers; and extensive use of the common
and resilient sumac. The intuitive and freeflowing
layout provides a sense of ease
and comfort in a semi-natural, sprawling
garden space. This project teaches multiple
generations about passion, technique and
the deep understanding of your choices. It
is philosophical, daring and fully aware of
its power.
