Celebrating 5 years of World Landscape Architecture

Celebrating 5 years of World Landscape Architecture

 

World Landscape Architecture celebrates 5 years of  publishing landscape architecture projects, news, competitions and book reviews. Originally a blog named World Landscape Architect with a few readers has grown into a webzine of over 35,000 readers and our more recently the WLA Quarterly Landscape Architecture Magazine.

One of the first posts back in 2007 was about “Michael Arad achieved the dream of many architects: He won the competition to design the memorial to the victims of September 11, 2001, in Manhattan.”, 5 years later and the 9/11 Memorial  is now open and a landmark space in New York.

Over the last five years and almost 3,000 posts we have had the pleasure of publishing projects from across the world from the small gardens to the mega-city masterplans. Design Firms, students and government organisations have contributed a great deal to World Landscape Architecture and I would like to celebrate their contributions by giving our readers a free download(ipad or PDF) of the #05 edition of WLA Landscape Quarterly Magazine for the next week. The #05 edition includes the North Wharf Promenade in New Zealand by Taylor Cullity Lethlean & Wraight+Associates and also included is projects from SWA Group, Sasaki Associates, HM White, OKRA and more.

Also to celebrate our 5 years we will give away 5 print editions of the upcoming #07  edition of WLA Landscape Architecture Quarterly Magazine to 5 people who tell us their favorite project on World Landscape Architecture and why. Send your entry to submit@worldlandscapearchitect.com. We will announce the 5 winners on December 14 .

Thank you to our readers and supporters.

Shortlist announced for 2012 World Architecture Festival Awards

The entries for the World Architecture Festival 2012 Awards have been short listed. The festival this year has moved to Singapore and it shows in the projects short listed for 2012 awards with many projects situated in Asia. This is especially true of the Landscape categories with only 2 of 9 projects in the short list for Landscape Projects – Completed designs – urban being situated outside the Asia-Pacific region. It is also interesting to see that no projects were short listed in the categories of Landscape Projects – Completed designs – rural and Future Projects – Landscape. Looking through the short lists for the architecture and urban planning categories there is a large number of Asia-Pacific projects whether this is due to the festival location in 2012 or that a large number of projects have been undertaken in the region due to the stronger economy in comparison with the rest of the world. Congratulations to all those short listed.

Working waterfronts are constantly in flux; crusty, utilitarian, muscular and dissolving, with temporal qualities that engage all of our senses. Yet contemporary waterfront redevelopments are often characterised by the removal of the very qualities that attract us to these places. At Auckland’s Wynyard Point redevelopment these conventions are challenged in a development that anticipates transforming a forlorn industrial and maritime precinct into a layered, mixed-use precinct.
