Grorudparken (Grorud Park) is one of four new neighbourhood parks in Groruddalen. The park introduces facilities for athletics, play, recreation, youth programmes, social interaction, and cultural activities for the diverse local population. LINK Landskap was the project Landscape Architect, under commission from Oslo Municipality’s Department of Water and Sewage. However, several other municipal departments were also involved in the project – The Department of Recreation, The Planning Office, The Office of Cultural Heritage Management, and the District of Grorud. Planning and design work for the park began in the autumn of 2009, based on recommendations contained within the Development Control Plan for Alna Reserve (KDP Alna Miljøpark).

What happens when the artificial mixes with forces of nature; what if urban punks found themselves surfing in open sea or riding waves of magma?
The project for the Alingsås skate arena is a 12 minutes light show were we integrated the floor washing light of a sequence of about 20 Philips LED colour blast with the special projected effects of 4 Martin Moving Heads. Visual effects were highlight by two big Traxon mesh screen fixed on two opposite towers. The rhythm of the show, based on natural sounds, move the light from quiet, to shocking effects, moving light levels from daylight to darkness.

The Tagus Linear Park combines two different typologies of spaces: A single multifunctional area named â€˜PRAIA DOS PESCADORESâ€™ (FISHERMENâ€™S BEACH), set by the riverside within a former sand deposit, and 6 km of PEDESTRIAN TRAILS associated with dirt roads, waterlines banks (streams and drainage ditches), which converge to Praia dos Pescadores, coming from urban and natural areas. The connection between the â€˜beachâ€™ and natural areas is made through a 700m long raised wooden path by which a Bird Observatory built from old pallets can be reached.

Beginning in 2006, a new urban district, Qunli New Town, in the size of 2733 Hectares, was planned to be developed at the east outskirt of Haerbin City of North China. 32 million square meters of buildings will be constructed in 13-15 years. More than one third of a million population are expected to live here. While only about 16.4% of the developed land was zoned as permeable green space, the majority of the former flat plain will be covered with impermeable concrete. While the annual rainfall of this area is 567mm and concentrated in June through August (account for 60-70% of annual precipitation). Flood and water log were frequent in history for this area.

By definition, an omnibus refers to a collection of stories made by a single narrator or several authors tied together by a single subject. It also pertains to a collection of objects at once. Along these lines, Omnibus City is a proposal that connects elements of downtown Salt Lake City that are already physically close, yet are experienced individually. Omnibus City strives to create a collection of experiences along three main corridors: Green, Culture (Main Street), and Retail. Acting as a catalyst of activity linking adjacent blocks to Main Street, these passageways are connected through a common design vocabulary of path, pattern, and phenomenon meant to permeate blocks 69 and 70 and guide visitors through its permutations.
