Night Garden

In the shadow of the Jerusalem Citadel, a "Night Garden" of solar-powered flowers bloomed in 2009, capturing sunlight during the day and glowing in ever-changing colors and intensities throughout the night.

"This magical garden offers a variety of flowers of different sizes and types of illumination, which come alive only at night: Giant lotus flowers, over four meters in diameter, intermittently opening and closing, and changing colors at a subtle pace; while delicate tulips, illuminated by one color of varying intensities; and masses of gently glowing dewdrop flowers, create an poetic ambiance of tranquility, sensual beauty, and pure serenity," the architects with O*GE Creative Group, which created the garden in cooperation with the Israel Electric Corporation, write on their website.

"Our aim for this installation was to demonstrate that by using alternative energy and technology, not only are we safeguarding our environment, but we are also creating a poetic, magical experience."
