Who is Alejandra Coll and what he does?
‘Asilvestrada’ is my way to say what I am and what I do. My mother was the first in put me this name. Over time, ‘Asilvestrada’ had become a personal and professional project, a brand. This project is about bringing the nature closer to the people in an easily and affordable way. I design gardens, I decorate terraces, I give advices in urban gardens design and I make ceramic objects. I love to walk through the forest searching reusable elements. I like to use my hands in my work and put all my senses in what I do. In contact with the nature I grow and I find all the resources to help who visit me.
Can you tell us a little bit about the story behind your passion with the nature? How did it all start?
When I was 21 I traveled around the world in a real eye-opener trip. For the first time, I stopped to look at my own navel and started looking everything it’s outside: I learned to connect myself with the environment. I came back to Barcelona fascinated because of the nature… So I immediately made a curse in gardening to, later, be able to study garden design in London. That was the starting point, then I’ve been finding different forms to connect with my passions: the last, ceramics.
What do you think is the recipe for success of your projects?
I offer a middle way between a landscapist office and a gardener. My proposal is based in a planed design but with a friendly and close contact with the person I’m working with. I like to establish good relationships in order to understand what every client need. In this point, the brand and the person came together to became a choice to restore nature where is needed.
What important lessons have you learned from your experience with documentary discipline?
If you mean learning for life in general I think that we are an interconnected system, we’re part of the same cycles. When you open your eyes to the nature, you never feel alone again. It’s a life long learning and the challenge consists on being ready to receive encouragement constantly. Introduce yourself in the landscape teach you that observation is our most powerful ally.
