garden of the future

Air quality in Ostrava:

Very good


The PLATO Bauhaus Garden in the partially roofed atrium of the former hobby market was created as a space for relaxation, outdoor seating (it is connected to the bistro) and for special programmes. Its concept, developed by an artist in cooperation with garden designers, blends depression from the apocalypse with optimism arising from the regenerative power of nature.


We share minerals and semi-precious stones. What does it mean? In the PLATO Bauhaus Garden you can find a rare stone in the so-called Geolocality and take it home for your pleasure. If you are a mineralogist or weekend collector, bring your own findings that no longer fit in your display case at home, and share them with our visitors.

If you want to share your minerals in PLATO, please contact us at info@plato-ostrava.cz.

The Garden is a work of art by Matyáš Chochola and the Partero studio. The video was made by artist Rustan Söderling.
