The Chi garden’s concept and principle rest on the idea of nature being the driving force of human beings’ vital energy. In the everyday life in the city, people continuously wear out their life energy which needs to be constantly "recharged". Nature appears as the primordial element for both the assimilation and boosting of energy in humans. The Chi garden represents the continuity of nature at a human scale and it will allow the visitors to have a space to recharge their chi - life force in Chinese culture. This space consists of the conjunction of three elements of nature - air, water and earth. Water comes up in the garden as a water mirror. Earth is represented by small hills that will be the foundation for the birches, which due to its light foliage, offer the visitors a visually captivating dynamic with the air element. These elements’ energy can be assimilated by visitors, in an abstract way, through electrical wires (the way how modern man connects with the world around) which will be connected to a platform where the entire garden can be contemplated.
