Visually stimulating and captivating, Bangkok-based multi-design studio, Apostrophy, used structure, lights, and imagery to design the Imagination Light Garden. The garden sits on an estimated area of 6,300 m2 at the International Horicultural Exposition Royal Flora Ratchaphruek at the Royal Rajapruek Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The story and symbolism of the lotus flowered given to King Bhumibol from an elderly woman outlined the design of the nearly 2 million light bulb installation garden.
The neon, fluorescent lights are enchanting as it encloses the entirety of garden in its family of colors and sculptures. The garden consists of five separate areas, each one with its own theme, allowing the visitors to use their senses to visualize and feel the creations of the sculptures for each particular story. Whether it be that the design hold hands and be in sync with the music or interactive sensors that creates wave motions in the field with a simple wave of the hand, each area, or “chapter”, ignites an atmosphere particular to its anecdote and purpose. The garden is simply electrifying and humble in the way that its power has the ability to clutch onto the soul and senses of the public. View images of the Imagination Light Garden here.
