Plot Fresh gar­den FR87. Spon­sor Ber­muda Tourism Author­ity. Con­trac­tor Jack Dunck­ley Ltd. Theme A colour­ful ex­otic gar­den that rep­re­sents the spec­ta­cle of a vol­canic erup­tion.

Multiple an­gles and re­flec­tions, lush trop­i­cal plant­ing and pur­ple and red light­ing cre­ate the en­ergy and drama of a vol­canic erup­tion. Jack has set this stylised volcano on Ber­muda and is hop­ing to source a hand­some na­tive fan palm Sa­bal bermu­dana, which is now un­der threat, as the fo­cal point of this Fresh gar­den. Four tri­an­gles of sheet alu­minium, laser cut in sec­tions through which the ground-level plant­ing can be glimpsed, sur­round the palm. At the cen­tre of each tri­an­gle flames dance up through lime­stone rocks sug­gest­ing flow­ing lava and these, with the architectural fo­liage of plants, such as Alo­ca­sia ‘ Cali­dora’, Ensete ven­tri­co­sum and Philo­den­dron bip­in­nat­i­fidum, are re­flected in two bound­ary walls, cre­at­ing a series of il­lu­sions.
