The lines of the landscape are reminiscent of nature: branches, leaves, channels, cracks, rivers. They seem to create a virtual grid over the existing site providing organization, despite their visual disorder.

Each separate area of the future landscape was carefully designed to not just be an arbitrary garden, rather a space where everything is in place and has a rationale balance.

The landscapes irregular lines, widen and narrow, intersect and intertwine, and adapt to the solar topography. Volumes of  wood protrude from the ground, concrete walls and walkway like rocks become walking tours and rest areas.

    seems to be really hard to take a photo of ; they should send a pro out there who can really communicate thru the lens with the built environment. the plans look pretty awesome, the pics not so much. i’m sure it is way more cool than it appears.
