Las Violetas Garden | Huelva, Spain | Juan José Fernández Acosta

PIC_0007_WLA_JJFERNANDEZ_2

“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.

Open Hearth Park at the Former Sydney Tar Ponds

Open-Hearth-Park_1
For nearly a century, the shores along Sydney Harbor bordered one of North America’s largest steel mills and coke ovens, making the steel industry an integral part of the region’s economy and culture. But when the plants closed in 2001, they left tons of industrial waste behind, creating a deep wound that divided three neighborhoods from their waterfront and from each other for nearly 13 years.
