The area of Zsolnay Quarter is divided into a southern and a northern part. The much bigger northern part - as part of the Zsolnay family's living space - was originally created as an English landscape garden, interlaced with the family's own works as in a fairy tale. On the other hand, the southern area could be interpreted as the counterpole of the northern part ...

The site occupies 87 acres of a dramatic, forested valley that opens up to the geologic expanse of the Hudson River. Scenic Hudson Land Trust selected Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects as prime designer to transform this post-industrial site into a park ...

Zollhallen Plaza is new counterpart for the historic customs hall which was restored in 2009. The plaza is a fine example of water sensitive urban design, as it is disconnected from the sewer system. Beautiful planters provide infiltration points, and subsurface gravel trenches with innovative in-built filter medium reduce the hydraulic overload on the sewer system. Indented plaza areas create a surface flood zone. No rain water is fed to the sewer system, instead the groundwater table is recharged.

Most cities with industrial pasts inherit problematic environmental futures. The Steel Yard’s cleanup is a showcase for regenerative design in a tough environment. Within industrial Providence, our project is a public intervention that upends commonly held notions of blighted neighbourhoods and shows the potential for real, actively engaged – not simply ‘adaptive’—re-use.

In the course of land recultivation of a mining area as part of a cement plant near the village of Dormettingen, not only agricultural land is being restored but a new park is being created, adding sustainable value for people and nature. Instead of clearing away the remnants of the extraction of resources left here, the site is given back to residents and visitors as a nature theme park and event setting.

Strijp S is the former factory site of the old Philips-complex in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. The 27 hectare large area, which is the home of a considerable amount of monumental buildings, provided work to thousands of people between 1920 and 2004. In 2004 Philips sold Strijp S to investor Park Strijp Beheer, who will be redeveloping the area in different phases to a unique living and working environment, while respecting the original character of the remaining constructions.

Up until the end of the 1970s, building rubble, domestic refuse and industrial waste had been deposited in the Georgswerder landfill. In the early 80s it had already been established that leachate water from the landfill site contained particularly hazardous dioxins, which is why this site gained a sad fame in that time. In the years to follow, concepts for the remediation of the landfill have been elaborated and implemented ...

After closing down the former US Army helicopter airfield Bonames seemed to stay behind as a relic of the cold war like a contaminant in the near-natural floodplains of the river Nidda. The basic idea behind the design is to modify the original airfield and its materiality so gently that the military character of the area melts together with the surrounding nature to a new unity. Simultaneously, the former airfield was opened to the public for recreational outdoor uses.

An iconic site within the middle of Sydney Harbour, Cockatoo Island embodies many of the cultural values that distinguish Sydney and its environs to the world stage. In providing a new use to this former ship yard, jail and defence establishment, public access and interpretation was a high priority.
