Sunland Celebrity Garden is a high end residential community situated adjacent to Waigaoqiao Free Trade Zone. Complete with living and entertainment facilities this development is designed in a neo-classical architecture style, where the landscape architecture has been divided into three parts: a club house, formal style gardens, and natural style gardens.
The Seunsangga Complex is a series of large, contextually awkward buildings that divide a historical industrial area in half. Being over one kilometer long, the complex once served as a break in the urban fabric meant to prevent the spread of fire and disease. At this moment, the competition seeks to refit the complex into the city’s increasingly urbanizing context. The complex’s modernist buildings are a monolithic urban gesture through the City.
Impulse, a winter installation comprising 30 giant seesaws that will transform the Place des Festivals into a vast illuminated playground, accompanied by a set of all-new video projections. The creation is the work of Toronto-based firm Lateral Office and Montreal-basedCS Design, in collaboration with EGP Group of Montreal.
The consortium, chosen through an open competition for the sixth annual Luminothérapie event, has created a playful interactive space that will warm hearts of all ages during the cold season. The video below shows the process of building and testing the seesaws.
“Every year, we are eager to give Montrealers a new creative winter experience in the heart of the Quartier des Spectacles. Luminothérapie’s public installations transform our relationship with the city, beautify it, and give it a wonderful friendly touch. Luminothérapie also keeps Montreal shining bright around the world as a hub of interactive art,” said Chantal Rossi, Ville de Montréal Associate Councillor Culture, Heritage and Design.
Liquid substances on Earth naturally fall and flow to the lower grounds, forming an erosion landscape that humans find beautiful. Our site located at the intersection where the flow meets the ground and is surrounded by mountains. The process of erosion inspired the shape of the landscape became the feature of our designs.
Conran and Partners’ design concept for the project responds to the essential elements of the site: its location on the very edge of Tokyo, its adjacency to the Tamagawa River and the shift across its one kilometre length, from the urbanity of the railway station to the west, to the park to the east. As such, the scheme reflects the site’s important transitionary role at the threshold between city and nature in this popular, family-orientated neighbourhood.

Since the 1950’s, the weekend drive 1-3 hours away from cities is a democratic automobile-driven North American custom involving the ritualistic exodus of urban populations from metropolitan centres to sacred landscapes, to worship natural monuments and recreate. This phenomenon is integral to the role that landscape plays in shaping Canadian Identity.
Proposal Ocean Hyacinth is a network of floating tidal marshes that will purify the contamination caused by the ship breaking process. During the continuous tidal water exchange on the Ocean Hyacinth, the combination of various soils, plants, animals, and bacterial will not only filter and break down the contaminants from the sea but also form a tidal marsh ecosystem as a floating island. In addition to revitalizing Alang’s natural costal ecosystem, we also propose the Ocean Hyacinth to become a platform for aquaculture facilities, tidal power generators, and lighthouses. The surface provides people a coastal park with beach space. The light power for navigating ships at night and general utility power for the island are generated by tidal energy.
