Wild Twister in Ocean Park

Ocean Park is a marine mammal park, oceanarium, animal theme park and amusement park situated in the Southern District of Hong Kong. In the WILD TWISTER area of the park, the shining architecture under the wild twister logo hardly goes unnoticed. The credit goes to Flexglo™ F15 LED lights that are recessed in the idiosyncratic architecture.  Caption The flexible linear lights are embedded discreetly all the way around the slightly wavy edge, masterfully outlining the curved line. The concrete columns down there rise at slightly different heights to create an undulating topography. In response, F15 luminaires are mounted up in the coves of the pillars, producing indirect lighting to underline the mushroom shape and adding a... More

Heatherwick turns derelict pier into urban oasis from hectic New York City life

Heatherwick Studio set the original brief to create a pavilion on an enlarged waterfront jetty aside for the opportunity to rethink what a pier could be. On top of the stumps remains of a former pier the studio realized a completely new park as an oasis away from busy city life. Timothy Schenck Typical pier structures are flat, but Heatherwick lifts the surface to create an exciting height difference. The elevation allows for new sightlines to the park and lookout points over the river. At the same time the lifted corner lets direct sunlight reach the marine habitat that formed over time in between the piles. Timothy Schenck   “We had the idea to make an entirely new type of pier as a lush rectangular garden island... More

Youth Park, Litomyšl

One of the most important public parks in the town of Litomyšl. The Youth Park is in a good sense everyday, ordinary. The enormous potential of the park is the proximity to elementary schools and to residential districts. Children and other residents really enjoy the Youth Park every day - despite the fact that maintenance of the Park has long been really minimal. Our proposal understands the Youth Park as a place to spend free time of all generations of inhabitants. We take the park as a versatile platform under the trees, with easy walking links to the neighboring city structure and the nearby free countryside. Concept of park adaptation respects as much as possible the existing greenery and the existing path network in the park.&nbs... More

Belvedere – Nikola-Lenivets, Russia

Every year Nikola-Lenivets gathers hundreds of international artists who place their installations at the open air art festival in the park. Thus visitors can enjoy both a beautiful walk and an art exhibition. Some time ago the organizers of the festival have decided to complete the experience by building a belvedere which can offer a unique view through the entire exhibition zone. The project proposal represents a giant staircase located on one of the main park alleys and built in weathering steel on concrete foundations. This is a double staircase with an opened and a closed stairway. Thus visitors can climb the closed stairway and discover the sudden surprise of the spectacular view from the top. After, they can go down by the opened sta... More

Park Residential

Park Residential | Behzad Atabaki | BonnArq Architects  Our conceptual image of a home is a haven far from the madding urban crowd, away from noise, visual pollution, and a place of retreat from everyday worries where we can rest and rewind. However, what comes first to the mind when thinking of the inner space of "home", is the notion of "protection"- against all above. Standing for such a sense of security would be the "curtain" hanging and dancing, "symbolizing" a home behind.   Creating a shared ground between architecture and the city, in this building as a group of “homes”, the curtains swinging with the breeze, which would call up the image of a warm hearth and home, acting both as a representation of a house...

The Health Resort Park in Horyniec Zdrój

The health resort park in Horyniec Zdrój in the south-east part of Poland, just a few kilometers from the board with Ukraine, was originally founded in the 1930s by the Karłowski family and it was destroyed during World War II. In the years 2013 - 2015 the municipality of Horyniec-Zdrój decided to revitalize the park with the help of the architectural office, RYSY Architekci. The whole project was a great challenge for the whole multi-branch team under the leadership of Rafał Sieraczyński, the main designer and the owner of RYSY Architekci. The designers set a goal for themselves to emphasize the health-focused character of the place. For the last years the historical shape of the park with its central axis was lost. It was necessa...

Children Park EXPO 2015

The Children’s Park, a linear garden with eight attractions on raised platforms, has giant bobbin- shaped elements in wooden lattice sheltering the exhibits and children’s activities from rain and sun. Fragments of domesticated nature where the natural and artificial coexist, the exhibits were designed to privilege the organic language of nature as opposed to a more formal architectural vocabulary. The project, essentially a nature walk with eight exhibits, offers children playful learning experiences as they interact with various aspects of Expo Milan 2015’s core theme, “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”. An hour long tour includes each of the eight exhibits, brief interactive games for groups of around 25 children (a typical school cla... More

PARK ON THE BALATON LAKE

EUROPEAN PRIZE FOR URBAN PUBLIC SPACE 2012 / NOMINATION Goclaw is the largest apartment block complex, built in Warsaw between 1975 and 1990. It is currently inhabited by more than fifty thousand people. In recent years neglected urban area in the central part of the complex was designated for the recreational park. The area was what remained of an old construction site with piles of garbage and concrete waste. The rubble surrounded an artificial water reservoir. It was ironically called “Balaton” by the local residents, as the Balaton lake in Hungary once was an popular holiday destination in Poland. The main goal of this intervention was the creation of an recreational park opened to the public. On all stages of the design a... More
