Atelier le balto was created in 2001 in Berlin by Marc Pouzol, DLPG landscaper, now associated with Véronique Faucheur, urban planner by training. In partnership with their accomplice Marc Vatinel (Le Havre), they were led to create gardens for many places of art or culture such as Kunst Werke - Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, the Palais de Tokyo in Paris and most recently as part of the Hors-Pistes festival in Beaubourg. For all three, as well as their numerous collaborators, the training and the profession of gardener play a big role in their creations of landscapes, that it is on the scale of the park, the garden or the city.
