The gardens are also the ideal place for parties and important events. Why not a wedding in the open-air tree museum? A ceremony, a reception, a presentation, an event, as well as an encounter or a seminar between these sublime creatures? A perfect alternative to the ''open spaces'' is a Victorian orangery faithful to the British style or the classical structure, almost in Bauhaus style, equipped with multimedia technologies and avant-garde infrastructures, is ideal for corporate events, cultural and artistic exhibitions, congresses, galas and private events for 20 to 200 people.
In 2010, the Tree Museum officially opens its doors to visitors. It is created in a beautiful park of 75,000 square meters on the Obersee in Rapperswil-Jona, near Zurich. It shows a large number of trees selected from the collection of Swiss landscape architect and the collector of trees world famous Enzo Enea.
In a series of open spaces, Enea shows his appreciation for the tree, using it as object-space, creating a world that demonstrates his unique aesthetics, sustainability, history and the vital function, always with due respect.
The collection of trees is composed solely of species of local climate zone. In the museum there are over 50 trees and more than 25 species, some of which are over 100 years old and, therefore, create an aura of immortality. A further 100 trees and plants are located in a park surrounding the Tree Museum. Throughout the system Enea Landscape Architecture there are over 3000 shrubs Enea has col- lected over the last 20 years.
Sculptures by contemporary artists are alongside the trees, taking the old idea of combining art and nature to make them blend together. The Enzo Enea's Museum of the Tree has implemented for the first time his vision and enabled him, for the first time, to carefully combine landscape, botany, architecture, art and design.
