Casanova + Hernandez Architects must have had the ol’ “slow down and smell the roses” saying in mind when they designed the Ceramic Museum and Mosaic Park in Jinzhou, China.
Inspired by the crackled glaze of ancient Chinese porcelain the architects used broken local ceramic pieces to mosaic the pavement and benches of the park. The choice of flowers for the garden directly corresponds to the red, yellow, blue and purple shades of the museum’s exterior. The construction combines architecture with landscape in a playful way that makes you unsure of whether you are looking at pottery or flowers.
