Shanghai Houtan Park in Shanghai, China by Turenscape Architect

Sunday, May 15th, 2011
Built on a brownfield of a former industrial site, Houtan Park is a regenerative living landscape on Shanghai’s Huangpu riverfront. The park’s constructed wetland, ecological flood control, reclaimed industrial structures and materials, and urban agriculture are integral components of an overall restorative design strategy to treat polluted river water and recover the degraded waterfront in an aesthetically pleasing way.

Japanese Garden in Budapest, Hungary by Atelier Peter Kis Architect

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

The hill of the Japanese Garden was created from the debris of the Zoo and its surroundings after World War II. Initially there was an open air stage here, which however was unutilised for major parts of the year occupying this otherwise rather narrow area. The Japanese Garden was developed in its place and a park library was also in the plans, although it only operated for a few years. The Zoo made the decision to create a Japanese Garden in 1958. During the almost ten years of the preparatory work the former stage hill was covered by grass, the topography of the area was established and the roads renovated.
