The Municipality of The Hague presented the vision for The International Park which will connect three existing parks – the Scheveningse Bosjes, the Waterpartij and the Westbroekpark – into one improved city park that rivals London’s Hyde Park in size.

Plovdiv Central Square | Plovdiv, Bulgaria | Panagiota Mouratidou, Vasiliki Tsiouma

IM_8

Plovdiv Central Square has the potential to become the most visited civic destination of the city and even more one of the most famous European Squares. However, at present the Square appears to be of poor identity, not well connected to the city, with no distinct access points, with neglected, fragmented archeological spaces, lack of vegetation and vast hard pavement and parking surfaces, disorienting and confusing users and visitors as they move across or between the different levels.

A major new shopping development and roof garden above Canary Wharf Crossrail Station has opened to the public today, ahead of the station opening in 2018. Stretching more than 300 metres along the north dock, the above ground scheme designed by Foster + Partners includes four levels of shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as extensive public gardens, which are densely planted with trees and plants, and interspersed with seating and pavilions – all partially enclosed by a timber lattice roof, which wraps around the building like a protective shell.

The office complex for about 800 employees resembles a varied flotilla of buildings at different levels, which are connected by a series of outdoor spaces like atria, courtyards, terraces and roof gardens. The mixture of office buildings and outdoor spaces creates the impression that this is a town within a town. The complex, surrounded by canals and lakes on all four sides, forms the entrance to the new, urban district on the waterfront in Aarhus, Denmark.
