Brookhollow | Dallas, USA | Hocker Design Group

Brookholow_Adolfo_ACV_7843_150dpi

Located towards the back of a 2.5 acre suburban site, this house is tucked discreetly near the riparian zone of an existing creek. The house is sited for maximum views and minimum tree loss. The resulting synthesis is a project that feels as if it has been built for years. Three wings surround and open to a central courtyard overlooking a swimming pool and the creek beyond.  The landscape architecture program includes active zone areas for family use and restoration of native creek habitat for plants and wildlife.

Trekroner Plaza | Roskilde, Denmark | Active City Transformation

 ACT---Trekroner-Plaza---Picture-2

The goal of the assignment for Active City Transformation was to develop an innovative outdoor space that included space for cultural exchange, physical activities – formal and informal – and a common space for social interaction across age, gender, ethnicity and class around the lake of Trekroner, 50km west of Copenhagen. The Trekroner Plaza now serves as a natural meeting place and by that creates a new quality of public life that engages the residents and the students of the University culturally, socially and actively.

Inundation: Moving Beyond Toronto’s Blue Edge

 Canal-Perspective

The city of Toronto is undergoing waterfront revitalization on a massive-scale.  However, there is still a lack of focus on the primary issue: connectedness between the downtown core and the waterfront.  In 2014, the Young Leaders division of the Toronto chapter of the Urban Land Institute issued a call for ideas relating to this very question: How would you better connect Toronto with its waterfront?
