WLA 28 – Liberty Park is an unthemed edition of WLA Magazine (digital magazine) with fifteen projects from the best landscape design firms from around the world.
In this edition, we feature Liberty Park by AECOM, a roof-top park centered within the World Trade Center (WTC) District. The park serves as a publicly accessible community open space with unprecedented views to the 9/11 National Memorial. Also featured in WLA 28 is Play Landscape Be-Mine – a play-scape design by carve + OMGEVING that creates a unity with the mountain and its past: a pole forest as a landmark, an adventurous prismatic play surface on the flank of the mountain and a coal square on the top of the ‘terril’.
This edition also publishes award-winning projects from HASSELL, Tract Consultants + Wood Marsh Architects, Andrea Cochran Landscape Architecture. WLA Magazine always includes a wide variety of projects and this edition continues this tradition with a shelter for paragliders in Slovakia, a wetland boardwalk in USA, a boutique hotel in Thailand, corporate headquarters in Brazil, a “lunch park” in Sweden, a university in Mexico and playground in the USA.
