Carve creates challenging roller-coaster playground

The Oosterpark, built in 1891, is part of the Amsterdam 19th century extension girdle, and is the first large public park that was realised by the municipality. Landscape architect Leonard Springer designed a classic English landscape style city park with monumental trees, meandering lines and a large water pond. Traditionally, the Oosterpark has been flanked by public functions like the Koninklijk Instituut voor de Tropen, university buildings and the Tropenmuseum – monumental buildings that are located in the northern zone but which ‘turn their back’ towards the park.

Rewilding the Gardiner Expressway, a multimedia exhibition of video, images and sound, illustrates an imaginary walk underneath the Gardiner Expressway in Toronto from Dan Leckie Way to Cherry Street. In this imaginary, the viewer travels following the Gardiner, and simultaneously takes a walk along Leslie Street Spit through its wilderness. The spaces under the Gardiner are left to rewild through the action of the water, bringing a lake experience closer to the city, and a wild aesthetic to the urban realm.
