The time influence on Inhotim landscape

Art meets nature at the Inhotim Environmental Park, located in Brumadinho Minas Gerais / MG. It is widely regarded a bold project of great value to art, landscaping and architecture. Inhotim is the place where is possible to breathe both fresh air and the culture. The natural vegetation and the landscaped collection assemble a wide range of tropical species from Brazil and from other tropical regions of world. From (2000 - 2004) the park consisted of 30 hectares, but just now grown to 45 exquisite hectares of countryside, with five lakes comprising 3.5 hectares of laminar water. The water combined with the exuberant landscaping and the surrounding plants, create a distinct microclimate, considerably increasing the moisture and freshness of the park. The landscaped garden is full of surprises through the winding paths and magnificent botanical groups, unusual plant species, places and squares are in harmony with nature, architecture and with the art.  All this creates unique surprises along the numerous pathways. In these four years of uninterrupted infrastructure and landscaping work, Luiz Carlos Orsini, also contributed to the implementation of gardens working with more than 60 people, including gardeners, helpers, tractor, crane operators and carriers. Some days the extensive work counted fours trucks totally filled with palm trees, two cranes, a loader and a backhoe excavator supporting, making of this a real hard work. It was a period of a differentiated learning and Orsini had to assimilate the true scale of the landscaping, to know the dimensions of the masses and volumes of plants and groups and how to harmonize them, recreating them, recreating a new landscape. Beside the execution of the lake project design, all the rest was being done suddenly, driven by the desire to create situations where other than those already implemented. The plastic artists were free to interact with the garden and to choose where to exhibit their works. Inhotim is really a special place, with the particularity of being an Environmental Park Museum. It has become a roadmap for the critics, directors and national and international museums curators. The park is considered one of the world's best in its category. The relationship between Art and Space makes this place singular, turning it into a unique experience that certainly will be consecrated by the time. It's worth visiting!
