Peconic Bridge | Long Island, USA | AECOM

aecom-peconic-bridge-the-lookout
On Long Island’s eastern end, the Towns of Southampton and Riverhead, in Suffolk County, are planning for a new pedestrian bridge over the Peconic River. The bridge will serve as a connective public amenity with economic and visitor experience benefits for both municipalities. The walkable link between downtown Riverhead and the primary commercial corridor of NYS Route 24 in Riverside will provide extraordinary scenic views at its apex and will draw tourists to the region to visit the Riverhead/Riverside area. Additional foot traffic will spur economic activity on both sides of the river. The bridge promotes physical activity and environmental appreciation. The bridge will offer access from the Long Island Aquarium and other major downtown Riverhead businesses and institutions to Riverside through a natural trail setting along the Peconic River waterfront.

B’nai Jeshurun Linden Courtyard | Pepper Pike, USA | Cawrse & Associates

B'nai Jeshurun Linden Courtyard-Cawrse-Associates-7
B’nai Jeshurun Congregation is a synagogue that has been serving the Cleveland, Ohio area for almost 150 years. Located in Pepper Pike, Ohio, the synagogue is a large facility that holds several religious, educational and social events throughout the year. In 2013 the congregation asked landscape architecture firm Cawrse and Associates, Inc. to redesign the synagogue’s auto court and ceremonial courtyard. At that time, the auto court spanned the entire length of the building, which consisted of 40-year old crabapple trees, degraded concrete pavement and corroding concrete bollard lighting. These elements created an unwelcoming space that had not been used by the congregation in decades.

Openwork: The All London Lattice | landcraft

OpenWork_Approach_121002
Debated for centuries, the role of nature in the contemporary city has never seemed more essential or imperiled. As a result of great efforts to maintain the illusion of ‘nature’, the relationship between landscape and the city has been one of great stress, strain and contrivance.

Landscape was once the connective tissue between constructed elements and a continuous root system beneath our feet. Increasingly in the contemporary city, plant material appears as tiny islands adrift in vast oceans of concrete. The ground plane is a thin and brittle construct masking the hollow cavity below that houses urban infrastructure, transit systems and parking garages. Container planting has resulted in a scarce and scattered landscape of individual plants relegated to individual vessels.

Enlocus revitalises Morgan Court with an integrated and vibrant approach

20160209_Morgan-Court_021_Print
The design vision for Morgan Court, Glenroy arose from the many conversations with the local community and stakeholders that became the cornerstone of the project. This in depth local engagement process, together with the careful consideration of the long term objectives within the Glenroy Activity Centre Structure plan, resulted in a design that seeks to activate this public space now and into the future. These informative conversations strengthened the project’s focus on changing perceptions about the value of Morgan Court; how can the community’s appreciation be strengthened through an integrated and vibrant approach to this retail area?
