Artists-impression-of-the-Bridge-Terrace-(Credit-LDA-Design)

The £250 million regeneration of Sighthill is one step closer as Glasgow City Council issues the tender for lead contractors to progress the ‘Blue-Green’ infrastructure works, which it sees as the main driver for future investment. The Sighthill regeneration comprises approximately 800 new homes, a new school campus and community facilities, as well as commercial units. The infrastructure works have been integrated into the site thanks to a public realm design strategy, developed by LDA Design as part of the Infrastructure Design Team, alongside the council and its in-house masterplanning team.

il Giardino Volante | Pistoia, Italy | Lapo Ruffi, with Angiola Mainolfi

LRA_iGV_07w
The project of Giardino Volante was born from the memory of natural landscapes in which we imagined to design a green network within the urban built environment, in an attempt to create a park for all in the city of Pistoia.

A garden in the heart of the city created to offer Pistoia and its people a precious place and radically renovated, to meet up and stroll in the green. A public park accessible to all, where children can play and live their adventures inspired by nature and art. A magical and extraordinary place, in which to be guided by the imagination. This is the Garden Volante, a work that we are happy to donate to the city and to all those who want to visit it.

Playground and green space in Berlin-Friedrichshain

KAL_Child-playing-on-the-'Winding-worm'-bench

The urban quarters south of Frankfurter Allee are low-density areas with a high green rate („green islands“).
