Te Ara I Whiti – Lightpath transforms a redundant piece of motorway infrastructure into a sculptural and playful cycle path threaded through Auckland’s inner city motorway junction.
“Las Violetas” Garden was designed in 2013 in the Costa de la Luz region of Huelva, Spain. The garden is 1100 m2 and originally was mainly lawn and trees in poor condition. The concept for the gardens was to create “Las Violetas” garden is a more sustainable garden, saving up to 60% of water consumption, and reducing both inorganic fertilizers and pesticides contents in to respect the environment.
No less important is the aesthetical value of the Garden; At this stage I decided to highlight a deeply arabesque character of Las Violetas Garden, where the enclosure dominates the garden with decorative detailed walls; and once inside, the geometrical design creates a peaceful and garden for quiet relaxation.
The urban quarters south of Frankfurter Allee are low-density areas with a high green rate („green islands“). Small squares or green spaces accentuate the district and become sites with high amenity values. The design concept aimed to strengthen these characteristics and to enhance a distinctive identity.
