Colors on Water in Venice, Italy by GruppoFonArchitetti (Designed using ArchiCAD)

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

Article source: GruppoFonArchitetti

Venice is an organic city, where the sea water goes in for six hours and goes out for six hours from the lagoon, which surrounds the city.. The saltwater is mixed with fresh water of the lagoon, creating a unique ecosystem, where, perhaps, against nature, man has built. In these green water, due to the life of the seabeds, everything is reflected, starting from the sky which provides colour variations throughout the day, seasons and weather conditions.

Torreblanca Park in Alicante, Spain by Estudio Carme Pinós

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

Article source: Estudio Carme Pinós

It is a marginal lot, leftover from the uncontrolled growth of Torrevieja. The strong contour change in both sides of the lot makes the construction very complicated.

The project consists in replanting with pine trees the slopes, turning them into a forest where small paths go down to the lower level. It is at this level where the paths entwine aromatic planting beds, always in circles. Sometimes these circles get volume, metal trellis work that supports vines. We wanted our garden to be a concentration of perfumes in which we are submerged as we descend.

The city of St. Petersburg has released the three final designs for the St. Pete Pier including BIG’s the Wave, conceived as a strong character on the skyline and waterline of St Petersburg and Tampa Bay. Its characteristic waves and curves lend themselves to an array of activities around and within them.
