This thoroughly renovated, 160-acre, 2.3-mile public space, sometimes described as “Houston’s Central Park,” not only features beloved destinations old and new, but also deploys a vigorous agenda of urban ecological services and improved pedestrian accessibility.

Main-axonometric-view---Airport-Landscape

This project is in response to the pressures facing Badgerys Creek waterways as the second Sydney airport emerges, specifically, focusing on the increasing threat of invasive algae growth and the rising issues with airport pollution. A foreseen rise in pollution, CO2 level and nutrient supply to creeks will result in detrimental algal blooms in surrounding waterways – causing disturbance and imbalance in the overall ecosystem.

GREEN FOOTPRINTS – Circuit Design nature park made of Bornholm – for Bornholm

roundabout

Green Footprints (GF) is a real-life demonstration of how innovative, sustainable solutions are applicable to our every day operations and can have a triple bottom- line – being both economically, environmentally and socially sustainable. GF serves as a demonstration and a laboratory facilitating ongoing development of new sustainable solutions. Here, residue material from granite mining, and waste glass from the local glass blowing industry are some of the materials which are developed into building materials for the largest Nordic Cradle-2-Cradle nature park.

The circuit approach of Green Footprints will be a visible part of the landscape as green solutions and specific actions, which have both ecological and economic functions, and provide experiences and added value in more than one sense. Our circuit approach replaces traditional, standard methods concerning materials, energy, building and waste disposal with innovative green solutions which have a self-perpetuating positive impact and transform residue into resource.
