City Hall Square | Viborg, Denmark | LIW planning

       viborg_14

Viborg’s central role in the history of Denmark is today reflected in the city’s historical core, which in its structure also appears as a classical medieval town. The new City Hall square is placed in a former barrack area on the edge of the historic centre, and the classic sense of the town square as the city’s central public space is thus blurred. The central question in this project is therefore how to create a contemporary, welcoming and relevant reinterpretation of the City Hall square in a new context.

Flushing Saltworks: Reforming the Coastal Horizon, Queens, New York

Flushing-Salworks-New-York-8

Flushing Saltworks envisions to create flexible and ecological urban form –a landscape based urbanism- on the horizon of Flushing Bay in New York City. Employing morphology and performance of saltwork ecologies, the site is fabricated with fluid urban fabrics and pond typologies to integrate urban hydrology and estuarine ecology. The transition of coastal horizon proposes phenomenal atmospherics of the salt ponds and marshes, adapting tidal force and sea level rise. Thus, the project manifests new horizon which evolves into the flexible city, blurring the edge of the coastal shoreline, dissolving the hardened urban formation and creating ephemeral and porous lifestyle.

Gethsemane – a prayer garden in Pune, India

Gethsemane-Pune-India-4
What makes a garden what it is? How effectively design a garden so that it can become a space with a purpose? Gardens, or as we love to say Bāghs are always spaces with a purpose. They are meant for certain pre-determined activities to take place; a place for relaxation, a place for children to play, a place for outdoor parties and dinners, a place for solitude, a place for group gatherings, a performance space… the list is never ending. The qualities that truly make up this sense of purpose in any garden begin at the very heart of the design process. The purpose behind the garden is what the designer has at the back of his/her mind from the moment he goes about putting pen to paper. Without this sense of purpose, the garden is at the risk of becoming rather like a river which flows and has abundant water, but never meets the sea.

Krisha P. Singh Center for Nanotechnology | University of Pennsylvania | Roof Meadow

Peg-Woolsey_Roofmeadow1

Krisha P. Singh Center for Nanotechnology includes two green roof areas.  The Meadow Roof is a prominent feature of the building attracting individuals and groups eager to enjoy time in the rooftop amenity space. A second larger Sedum Roof includes native perennials and grasses planted alongside the building’s air handling and HVAC equipment. This larger Sedum Roof may have less aesthetic and cultural significance; however, it is a storm water management workhorse. Both green roof areas are an integral part of the project’s stormwater management plan.  Surrounded by floor to ceiling etched glass walls on three sides and a clear glass railing open to the city on the fourth side, the Meadow Roof is visually accessible from corridors and conference rooms.

D’Leedon | Singapore | ICN Design

WLA19-D'Leedon---ICN-Design---01
D’Leedon residential development is located in a strategic position within the Farrer Court residential area of Singapore, a unique influence on the character of the site is the absence of nearby high rise buildings. Its direct connection to Farrer Road make this a prestigious and highly visible site.
