Vandalorum proudly presents Garden Futures: Designing with Nature, the first exhibition that explores the history, present, and future of gardens from a global perspective. The exhibition investigates the origins of today’s garden ideals and emerging models in envisioning a better future. For many artists, designers, and landscape architects, the garden serves as a laboratory for new ideas. In an era marked by climate crisis, globalization, and food supply uncertainty, the garden has become a democratic experimental ground for sustainability, biodiversity, and social justice. The exhibition addresses these questions, and many more, using a broad range of examples from art, design, everyday culture, and landscape architecture – from deckchairs to vertical urban farms, from contemporary community gardens to living buildings, from artistic projects to naturalistic refuges.

The exhibition is produced by the Vitra Design Museum, the Wüstenrot Foundation, and the Nieuwe Instituut, in collaboration with Vandalorum. It is designed by the award-winning design duo FormaFantasma (Italy, Guest of Honour at Stockholm Furniture Fair 2024). The exhibition features works by over 100 artists, designers, and landscape architects, including Aino Aalto (Finland, 1894-1949), Marjan van Aubel (Netherlands, b. 1985), Stefano Boeri (Italy, b. 1956), Roberto Burle Marx (Brazil, 1909-94), Zheng Guogu (China, b. 1970), Derek Jarman (UK, 1942-94), Alexandra Kehayoglou (Argentina, b. 1982), Jamaica Kincaid (Antigua & Barbuda/USA, b. 1949), Peter Korn (Sweden, b. 1973), Ulla Molin (Sweden, 1909-97), Märta Måås-Fjetterström (Sweden, 1873 – 1941), Signe Persson-Melin (Sweden, 1925-2022), Piet Oudolf (Netherlands, b. 1944), and Mien Ruys (Netherlands, 1904-99).
