Urbanism | An unusual urban landscape
“Tapis Rouge!” A grass carpet installation runs through the entire length of the French town Jaujac
In response to a brief to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the village’s arts and nature trail programs, Marseille artist Gaëlle Villedary created this 1,400 feet long landscape in the French town of Jaujac. The living grass tapestry stretches across the length of the town.
It has apparently been a huge success as people instantly took to engaging with the installation – walking or sitting on the grass, or following its trail down into the town centre.
Villedary calls it “Tapis Rouge!” or the “Red Carpet” – colour discrepancy aside, I’d imagine the wonderful installation certainly makes the town inhabitants feel special.
