VIDEO | Community By Design: The Olmsted Firm and the Development of Brookline


From the Library of American Landscape History

Based on the LALH book by Keith Morgan, Elizabeth Hope Cushing, and Roger Reed, this short documentary tells the story of the development of the community of Brookline through the planning efforts of the firm founded by Frederick Law Olmsted Sr. Through plans for boulevards and parkways, residential subdivisions, institutional commissions, and private gardens, the Olmsted firm carefully guided the development of the town, as they designed cities and suburbs across America.

The masterplan, made by KCAP, is part of a family of three sites in the south-west of Novosibirsk, surrounded by largely agricultural fields and the Vaskhnil Agricultural Research Institute. The aim of the project is to create an intimate urban area that mixes lower buildings, intimate landscapes and shared public spaces, in contrast with the standard high-rise developments in Russia.

Kievit in Green | Antwerp Belgium | HOSPER

Kievitwijk-citybalcony-highres

The public space of Kievitwijk District serves as the internationally oriented entrance area of ​​the Central Station of Antwerp, as urban workplace and as green space for local residents. Therefore, a strong identity in the design comes first: as a binding element of the various spheres and users, and as a structuring public domain for the entire district (old and new). A coherent solution requires a clear appearance.

 Therefore the design team resolutely opted for a green character. The strong green structure in the design creates unity, and gives the neighbourhood an urban character and appearance.
