Garden of the Senses is no ordinary garden, not for Tallinn Botanic Garden or for Estonia. The garden is a voyage in the world of perception. It calls on us to take heed of our senses, manipulate them and develop them. It is first and foremost intended for people with special needs but it really calls on all of us to raise our awareness and hopefully increase our understanding of the needs and challenges faces by disabled people in their everyday activities. The main supporting element of the concept is universal design. The aim is to take into account as wide group of users as possible, no matter their capability either physically or mentally. The interest from disabled advocacy organisations and their constructive feedback were key elements while preparing this project.
