Les Jardins Ephemeres, organized by Urban Art, at Rikky’z awards many different outlooks on contemporary design. Rikky’z courtyard, from August 4th to the 7th, 2011, has become a Fleeting haven of several thousands of square meters, dedicated to gardening.

Visitors are discovering twelve themed gardens, created by an array of distinguished guest artists, landscape architects as well as designers, each appealing to the different senses through mineral matter, light, sound, and aroma.

Names like May Chediac, Nadine Labbaki, Riccardo Karam and Mousbah Al Ahdab are but a few of the guest talents who have uncovered their inspiration through Fleeting gardens.
