The labyrinth is based on a geodesic modular system and is made from 4,500 recycled water gallons. It is fully reconfigurable for all public activities. It responds to the Center for the Arts (Les 3 Cha) program as well as the symbolic demand for a labyrinth to complete and enhance the castle’s iconic presence.
The labyrinth – a place of games and seduction, but also of contemplation – represents a potential model for symbolic depth with its own aesthetic in the collective imagination and castle garden typologies.
The Chateaugiron Labyrinth was built using Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic modular system, which allows for large surfaces to be covered with the least amount of material possible.
