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. With the community’s strong economic and emotional ties to the site, the landscape architects led a design effort that closed the divide, healed the environmental scar and boosted the community’s reputation and pride.

Die Welle | Koeln, Germany | karres+brands with van Dongen-Koschuch architects

karres+brands---Die-Welle-01
The new neighborhood is a place of encounter. The lodging is residence and center of life for about 1.400 inhabitants and offers through its creative openness both space to the residents, as well as to the surrounding residential areas and work places. City thrives on diversity and attractive medium-through exchanges and among themselves. And one can easily imagine that the green neighborhood offers the different user groups, such as families with children, singles, shared apartments much room for development, but also the employees, by for example Oerlicon and Inficon, a special place for lunch.

Water Re-use and Visibility in the new city of Belval

WLA18_BelvalNord10-ELYPS

In the south of Luxembourg an industrial area, in earlier days used by the steel industry, was transformed into an attractive working and living environment. The project is near to the French border in the new city of Belval. 

On the south slope of the site, with a view on the French hills there will be a residential area with 500 houses called Belval Nord. The town planning concept follows the landscape and the building blocks are carefully fitted in, here the landscape creates the urban design.
