Lambeth Palace Road in London, England by Wildstone

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

Article source: Wildstone

A new hybrid advertising space and community garden, designed by Wildstone for client Clear Channel’s premium Storm brand, has transformed a treacherous corner in London into a vibrant community space. The formerly derelict site in Lambeth Palace Conservation Area had remained undeveloped for over twenty years and was eventually hoarded up. Anti-social behaviour was a longstanding issue, prompting Community Safety officers to request that the landowners investigate additional security measures and productive temporary uses for the development site. Innovative structures and urban space designers, Wildstone, have created a scheme to change this crime ridden space by transforming it into a publically open,working community garden, whilstrein stating the site’s original function as an advertising space.

Fast Track in Nikola-Lenivets, Russia by Salto Architects

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

Article source: Salto Architects

“Fast track” is a integral part of park infrastructure, it is a road and an installation at the same time. It challenges the concept of infrastructure that only focuses on technical and functional aspects and tends to be ignorant to its surroundings. “Fast track” is an attempt to create intelligent infrastructure that is emotional and corresponds to the local context. It gives the user a different experience of moving and percieving the environment.
