The design of public spaces elaborates the mutual engagement of city and landscape on a level of topographical contours, material and vegetation. Different typologies, patterns of the surrounding countryside are brought onto the site: flowers and fruits of courtyards and orchards to the private parcels, red sand and stone of the fallow lands to the sports areas, swaying grass of the cultivated fields to the park-fingers. Willow-accompanied footpaths are reaching inwards and a seamless blending with the adjacent agrarian scenery is created. From the city side, multifunctional concrete benches redraw and programme the limits of the sports areas and extend urban qualities into the landscape. [in collaboration w/ m. male]
