Nature : «The phenomena of the physical world collectively, including plants, animals, the landscape, and other features and products of the earth, as opposed to humans or human creations».

The Olympic stadium is a gray structure that blends itslef into its gray landscape punctuated with green moments. On the other hand, the Botanical Garden is incredibly well seated in its green landscape next to Park Maisonneuve and gently ponctuated with gray structures. The translation between the gray landscape and the green landscape has therefore all its relevance when thinking about human intervention into natural growth. In that sense, from one side to the other one, people will experience this migration of a peculiar landscape towards its opposite and therefore enjoy the activities that reflects the human intervention and their specific location while following this path. In the desire of experiencing all four elements of «Space for Life» as one single journey, this path is a representation of movement in active and passive ways. As a playground for everyone, the relation between the viewer and the performer is beautifully increase by this notion of movement and motion of the path. The movement of the performer becomes reality only if a viewer sees it.
