A POND FOR A SQUARE
We asked ourselves what type of square we would like to find, in this place.
We asked ourselves which elements could bring the livelihood of a square to this place.
We asked ourselves which feature could make someone want to stay, in this place.
Alongside the idea of shade, came the idea of water.
The same water that, though extremely close, only belongs to the garden.
A pure, liquid shape, that defines our pond for a Square.
