The Internationale Gartenausstellung 2017 (IGA 2017) is an international horticultural exhibition[1] that will be organized in the German capital Berlin in 2017. The venue is the area surrounding the Kienberg[2] that was originally known as Berliner Gartenschau. This was the horticutural exposition held in 1987, in that times in East Germany, in commemoration of the 750th birthday of the city of Berlin.[3] In 1991, after German reunification the park was renamed to Erholungspark Marzahn and expanded afterwards. During the years 2000 - 2006 several gardens modeled after Asian examples were added. Since 2007 gardens modelled after European examples followed.[4] In 2013 works began to prepare for the IGA 2017[5]
