The "succulent garden" installation, designed to activate the promenade of the IVAM (Valencian Institute of Modern Art) over the course of 4 months, explores the modular and geometric transition in the wood structure to activate the main entrance. With its flexible construction, it creates an object whose function varies depending on the assembly of the modules from agora hidden in the vegetation to an amphitheater for exhibitions.
