Typo-Garden.


In place of flowers, trees and plants the "Christian Garden" in Berlin-Marzahn is a garden of type. A claustral colonnade built from golden aluminium letters quoting words from the old and new testament. Whereas the landscape and garden design is done by the German office "relais Landschaftsarchitekten" the typography is done by Alexander Branczyk. The designer even designed an exclusive font for the project. [via fontblog]
