Syntheses of architecture and shared space is often a challenging process. Designing with nature in an urban context requires negotiation between the poetics of organic vegetation and hard edges. This project draws on the tension of these forms to highlight and expose natures beauty. A play with water, paving, topography and a wide range of plant species.
The outdoor space becomes urban pixilated borders, reflecting the surrounding building formations.The design highlights the functional rehabilitative qualities of outdoor space.
Naturelands and art are some of POLA’s favorite topics!
