Weekend Reflections: Garden of Contemplation


Last week I took the architecture tour of the recently opened Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg. The final stop on the tour was the Garden of Contemplation…it was designed to be an oasis for contemplation, consisting of a basalt floor, basalt columns, reflecting ponds and medicinal plants as well as wonderful views of “The Cloud” and “The Tower of Hope”.

The reflections in this pond were amazing and impossible to explain:cmhr reflections

  1. We have a lot of basalt stings like that in Auvergne, the French area from where I come ; they are call orgues (organ, the musical instrument), because they look a bit like those church instrument. I love the composition that was done with those collected by this artist ; it make such a neat reflection !
