Having lived in Zurich for the last five years, one of my favourite things to do is to walk to Lindenhof and enjoy the sun setting behind the city, bathing the houses in warm colours. The tradition has it that I always make a small stop by EneaHome (Garden design store) and allow myself to window shop and day dream to the time I will buy my first house, and work on my garden.
Two weeks ago I was taken to a surprise trip to Baummmuseum (tree museum); an expansive project of landscape architect Enzo Enea, worldwide known for his rich tree collection. The museum opened in 2010, vis-à-vis Enea’s company office, near Zurich lake in Rapperswil-Jona, Switzerland and it combines Enzo Enea’s rich tree collection (some of them are older than 135 years) with architecture, art and design. Enzo Enea envisioned the museum’s core deeply rooted in integration, even though it has rich esthetic elements, decoration was never their mission.
The museum is currently showing works by Ugo Rondione, Richard Erdman, Sergio Tappa, James Licini and Sylvie Fleury among others.
Open until October 2016
