The city of Jinzhou is located 430 kilometers north of Beijing in the province of Liaoning and lies 20 kilometers inland. The Jinzhou Longqiwan New Area is an urban development on the coast of the Bonzai Sea. Part of this development is a park, for which Bureau B+B is building a ‘fierljep’ polder and an information centre. This polder-garden will open during the Jinzhou World Landscape Art Exposition in 2013. More images and architects’ description after the break.
Bureau B+B shared with us their project Mr. Visserplein, a temporary facility for a square in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Mr. Visserplein is one of the most discussed open spaces in the center of Amsterdam, a politically difficult and historically sensitive spot. The current square is the result of a large number of accidental interventions in the past. Little remains of the original urban fabric.
