The Botanical Gardens of Rio de Janeiro could very well serve as a subject for the previous WWP event, Borders. It defines a frontier between the calm and uniqueness of the world's largest urban forest - Tijuca Forest - and the frantic mundane life of the city.

Created by D. João VI - at the time prince regent that would become later king of Portugal - at the year 1808 to be an acclimatization place for the spices brought from the East Indies, the Botanical Gardens of Rio de Janeiro are recognized internationally as a Living Museum in the area of Botany and defined by UNESCO as one of the reserves of biosphere.

O Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro poderia muito bem servir como sujeito de uma panorâmica para o evento anterior do WWP (Fronteiras). Ele define os limites entre a paz do ambiente único da maior floresta urbana do mundo - a Floresta da Tijuca - e a vida frenética e mundana da cidade.

Criado em 1808 por D. João VI - ainda príncipe regente e mais tarde rei de Portugal - para servir como lugar de aclimatação para as especiarias vindas das Índias Orientais, o Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro é internacionalmete reconhecido como um Museu Vivo na área da Botânica e definido pela UNESCO como uma das reservas da biosfera.
