Folding for Peace is a garden in Nagasaki, Japan where all the plants that compose the garden are folded out of white paper. Realized by Swiss Landscape Architect Anouk Vogel the piece was commissioned by the Gardening World Cup and awarded the Silver Medal and Judges’ Special Award at the Festival of Flowers and World Peace.

“An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. Inspired by this popular belief, the garden Folding For Peace is the physical remain of a wish for world peace.”—Anouk Vogel
