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.

Blending the Organic Landscape in Hangzhou, China by Klingmann Architects + Brand Consultants

Article source: Klingmann Architects + Brand Consultants

View of Landscape Between Campus Buildings

KABC’s winning scheme for an innovative office and research campus in Hangzhou, China, was selected over six international firms invited to submit designs. Our vision for the facility in the Hai Chuang Yuan Community is based upon creating a continuous multi-layered pedestrian experience. It is intended to strengthen and benefit the community, which will inhabit and move through the site. Everyday activities including parking underground, moving throughout the buildings, and working in the offices are connected to the natural environment. Workers will be engaged by exterior and interior green gardens that are interwoven into their office environment.

The Man-Built Islands Dongqian Lake Concept Design in Ningbo, China by HASSELL

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

Article source: HASSELL

Dongqian Lake, a water reservoir supplying the residents of Ningbo, requires regular dredging which results in a large quantity of by-product. The local authorities recognised an opportunity to use this by-product for the creation of a man-made island within the lake.

Tourkovounia as a Green – Wind Landscape in Athens, Greece by Andreas Demertzis, Ioannis Katsanos, Thanasis Farangas

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

Article source: Andreas Demertzis, Ioannis Katsanos, Thanasis Farangas

The reason for selecting and analyzing this concept was the examination of the area of Athens. The city is characterized by the growth and development of new buildings. Even if those new structures improved the every day life of the residents, the overall effect on the character of the city suffered.
We selected this particular concept because we noticed the negative impact of those urban structures on the landscape of Athens and that the city is “eating away” the landscape. Our intention is to create the opposite effect: for the landscape to merge with the city.

Visitor Centre in Australia by Jonathan Gibb – Architect

Saturday, September 29th, 2012

Article source: Jonathan Gibb – Architect

The split form is at once an ode to the landforms of the genus loci (rock out-crops) and the cultural interweave of local cultures. The building is distinctly two forms, the same yet mirrored & reversed to give a individuality & yet allowing each to speak – open faced to one another in constant dialogue. This dialogue is continued to the landscape by the form of the building, mimicking the shafts of rock and forming of stairs.

Reitarena Stubai in Fulpmes im Stubai, Tyrol, Austria by ao-architekten

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012

Article source: Michael Felder

Position within the landscape:

In order to establish a large enough flat surface area for the equestrian facility, the preexisting slope has been divided into several terraces. These terraces provide the necessary surface area required by each independent structure, such as the indoor riding arena, the stables, the open space, the kids club, the operator’s apartment, and subsequently trail away into the open country. Objects such as stables and the adjoining building are incorporated into these intersecting lines, which manifest themselves as batter and supporting wall, whereas the indoor riding arena and the gallery of the open space rest on the landscape.

Selvika in Havøysund, Finnmark Norway by RRA

Friday, July 13th, 2012

Article source: RRA

The initial approach was to single out and magnify the experience of walking from the roadside down to the seaside at this very special place. Therefore a main concern was to slow down this movement and make the path itself a means of refocusing the experiential mode: a measured, restrained approach that creates awareness.

LUX – Landscape design in Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg by AllesWirdGut Architektur ZT GmbH

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Article source: AllesWirdGut Architektur ZT GmbH

Between forward-facing high-rise buildings and blast furnaces of the past the new Steelyard square forms the center of Belval Ouest, a city development project which is currently constructed in Luxembourg on the grounds of a former steel mill. The disused industrial site´s atmosphere was characterized by wideness and roughness as well as pioneer plants such as mosses and birch. The former situation is necessarily literally covered by the new use and new design. Our major goal was it to let the now hidden qualities shine through the redesign.
