The building of the Małopolska Garden of Arts (MGA) has been realized according to a competition-winning design by Ingarden & Ewy Architects. The program and the initiative of establishing this new cultural institution in Kraków was proposed in the year 2004, by Krzysztof Orzechowski, Director of the Juliusz Słowacki Theatre and Janusz Sepioł, at the time the Marshal of the Małopolska Voivodeship. It is no coincidence that the building was raised in the vicinity of ul. Karmelicka – a street popular with students and locals alike – opposite the building of the public library, with the aim of ensuring its smooth inclusion into the “bloodstream” of the city.

The Secret Garden in Tavazzano Con Villavesco (Lodi), Italy by Tomas Ghisellini Architects

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

Article source: Tomas Ghisellini Architects

The expansion of the cemetery in Tavazzano con Villavesco experiences a new relationship between the city of the living and the places of the dead, creating a novel and interesting link between landscape and funerary architecture. The project actively builds the atmosphere of a park-cemetery, where all the individualistic exaggerations, typically connected to traditional Latin models, are replaced by a widespread, gentle, someway \”domestic\” monumentality.

Ceramics of Italy by Sergio Mannino Studio

The secret garden is one of Italy’s most characteristic places. Enclosed by four walls and protected from the chaos of the town, these gardens were literally private paradises for the use and enjoyment of rich aristocrats or, more often, for monks and nuns.

The booth for Ceramics of Italy is intended to be a little private paradise where people can rest from the chaos of the show and enjoy the best Italian food and coffee.

The contract to design Ireland’s first large scale urban wetlands and park surrounding a modern sports stadium, which it is hoped will act as a catalyst project for the redevelopment of Cork Docklands, has been awarded by Cork City Council.

The winning concept design, led by the Dutch landscape architects OKRA in cooperation with the Irish landscape architects REDscape, took the City Council’s brief for the redevelopment of Marina Park to a new level and offers an exciting vision of dynamic landscapes and ecosystems tailored to a modern and developing city. The design concept includes a sequence of urban water gardens, watercourses and wetland areas that will recycle storm water from the adjacent docklands and create a sustainable environment for the new city park on the River Lee.

Sensational Garden in Frosinone, Italy by Nabito Architects & Partners

Saturday, May 26th, 2012

Article source: Nabito Architects & Partners

The neighbourhood of Corso Lazio, in the city Of Frosinone, Italy, finally could enjoy its first public space , expected to be ready 35 years ago.

Sensational Garden represents the starting point of a big master-plan to renew and integrate the public spaces and the services to the housing neighbourhood. This lack of public spaces generate an absolute degrade of the entire area, and the neighbourhood has become an unsustainable dormitory. For this reason the project for the sensational garden amplify the idea of a relational space filling the social void with an explosive, playfull, sensorial and interactive intimate room, like a personal living room in a public realm. The garden is constantly in tension between artificial and natural elements.

Chapel at CREU-IL in Porto, Portugal by Nuno Valentim Arquitectura Lda

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Article source: Nuno Valentim Arquitectura Lda

The program consisted in the extension of a small chapel at a University Centre in Oporto. The twenty year old Centre was implanted at the end of a private garden. The existing chapel was too small for the number of students attending services and there was a wish to extend it to an area of 50m². The assumptions were as followed:

– reduced costs;
– open the space towards the garden;
– maximum comfort for users.

The main ideas flowed poetic and swiftly… Many references blended into this rare architectural work, with a theme that had always been of our interest.
