Disneyland Paris just shared a first peek at the vegetation of the new Avengers Campus coming to Walt Disney Studios Park this summer (2022).
A major departure from the concrete landscape of the now defunct “Backlot” area, the new land will feature two “green poles” – one at the entrance and the other in the center of the Campus.
The two green areas will combat heat islands; and reinforce the urban atmosphere of Avengers Campus.
According to Marc Boulanger, Landscaping Superintendent at Walt Disney Imagineering Paris:
“The choice of plant species and varieties was crucial. We made sure to allow a multitude of plants to flourish with a more mature bloom.” Thus, a multitude of Rhododendrons will bring a floral touch, with white and blue-violet shades to recall the costume of your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man.
The landscape of Avengers Campus is based on a subtle balance of forms that also includes many evergreen trees from Italy, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium. In total, no less than forty plant species have been selected to grow alongside the future recruits.
“This superimposition of old and new elements is also found in our work, since as soon as Tony Stark’s plans were announced, we preserved the magnolias that were already on the site of the future Campus and took care of them throughout the construction. We then replanted them around the restaurants and the south entrance to give them a second life, along with new plant species.”
When asked what his favorite detail is, Marc’s eyes turn to the Quinjet, the famous Avengers ship: “We have a beautiful Japanese maple right next to it. It’s a precious, slow-growing tree revered in Japanese culture for the art of bonsai. We chose it specifically for its particular slender architecture that harmoniously fits the Quinjet platform.”
