The Fangshan Tangshan National Geopark, 40 kilometres east of Nanjing, is the site of one of the world's most fascinating archaeological discoveries and home to China's new Great Relic Museum.
The design leads the way in the integration of landscape-based therapy tools. The rehabilitation courtyards incorporate pathways of various distances and obstacles to navigate; providing everyday challenges, such as navigating kerbs, slopes and stairs that allow patients and therapists to set goals and measure recovery.
Brookfield Place in Perth is a new mixed-use precinct that has transformed the city’s central business district, bringing life into an area that was long neglected and void of activity. The vibrant destination now attracts people by the thousands, as home to the world’s largest resources company and some of the Perth’s best restaurants and leisure activities.
A cloud-like structure suspended above a floating bar and open-kitchen restaurant on the banks of Melbourne’s Yarra River will form the spectacular centrepiece of the 2014 Melbourne Food and Wine Festival presented by Bank of Melbourne when it opens to the public today.
The HASSELL design for Palm Island was inspired by the city’s position at the convergence of the Yangtze and Jialing Rivers. It visually connects the reservoir and the lake; capitalising on the inherent qualities of the existing bodies of water and extending them to create a spectacular, uninterrupted waterscape and an inimitable dining experience.
The HASSELL design proposal for Lakeway had a strong sustainability agenda. It included setting aside a third of the site for bush regeneration, the creation of sensitive parkland interfaces with the adjoining school and residential area, as well as nature reserve.
The site was home to the Australian Fine China porcelain manufacturing company for 85 years, until its closure in 2006, which presented a unique opportunity for reinvention. The public realm was designed in collaboration with the MRA, the architect and specialist consultants, to achieve the vision of a culturally rich and distinctive urban community that enhances and connects to the surrounding commercial and residential areas through a generous parkland and open space network.
Understanding the behavioural characteristics of the giant pandas was critical to designing an immersive environment that allows the animals to behave as they would in the wild within their 3,000 square metre enclosure.
Installed on the top of the Burnley Campus administrative building, the facility comprises three separate roofs, providing cleverly integrated spaces that collectively allow for the full spectrum of activities undertaken in relation to the University’s green roof research and advocacy programs.
The HASSELL design solution emphasises the courtyard’s importance as the university's heart, providing a flexible space for events, and clear and safe access. Areas of turf have been constructed within clearings giving students grassy areas for relaxation, where they can gather to talk and debate, or just sit quietly and think.
