STUDENT PROJECT | The Riparian Land-Shaping Machine | Eugenio Da Rin, Josine Lambert

Riparian-Land-Shaping-Machine-Eugenio-Da-Rin-Josine-Lambert_1
Mountain landscapes have been subjected to a relentless conflict between conservative-picturesque attitudes and economic exploitation approaches. The project proposes a strategy that understands the river as a water-sediment management machine that choreographs newly manufactured riparian landscapes in order to put forward a decision-making mechanism to face the conflicting perspectives with existing social formations.

Our proposal for this 24-kilometer, peri-urban stretch of the Chuviscar River recognizes the importance of agricultural systems that helped define Chihuahua.

Rabbit House | Denver, USA | WERK | Charles Anderson Landscape Architecture

Rabbit-House-Werk-10

The sculpture “Hare” by Barry Flanagan stands inside the house and tempts the resident fox.

Denver’s regional landscape becomes the metaphor for this 3-acre estate. Inspired by the Denver landscape of mountains, prairie, and mowed turf grasses, we emphasized the change of seasons, native plants, and a fusion between landscape, art and architecture. The landscape features outdoor rooms, framed views to barrowed landscapes, and provides a habitat for wildlife and a substantial collection of sculpture.
