ART PROJECT: FLOWER LABYRINTH
On Saturday 17 June Amstelveen celebrated the city’s international band of jumelage with Villa El Salvador in Peru (20 years) and Berlin Tempelhof-Schöneberg (60 years). For this special event, artist Stephanie Rhode created seven houses on the city square. Through the seven houses was a path (labyrinth) of grass where you could walk.

WHAT DID THEY USE FOR THE PROJECT?
- 1.200 square meters of the town’s city square
- 15.000 Gerberas
- 5.000 Roses
- 3 cubic meters of woodchips
- 300 wooden discs
- 180 bundles of grass
- 800 CO2 plants
- And many other colourful flowers
Together with our floral partners: WB Gerbera’s, Van der Wilt Gerbera’s and Fresco Flowers we sponsored lots of flowers.
CREATING COLOURFUL ART TOGETHER
By working together on this project, people from Villa El Salvador, Berlin Tempelhof-Schöneberg and Amstelveen share experiences, culture and fun. The theme of the project is to understand each other and to find the way together.
The houses are a part of the philosophical aspect of life. The houses are a symbol that can be interpreted in many ways. The artist’s vision of the project is: the human as a being and the path in life that every human takes.
It is great to see how a project with flowers can bring people from all over the world closer together.
The local broadcast station RTVA made a news item of the project. It is only available in Dutch, but pictures say more than a 1000 words (right?!).
