UMI NO MORI by TADAO ANDO (AND YOU…)

Aberrant weather conditions, increasingly pronounced in recent years, are presenting us with firsthand experiences of how global warming and other environmental issues facing our planet will bring major changes to our lives and the lives of our children. At the same time, with the world population about to reach 6.7 billion, the increase in environmental load on our planet arising from urban living is perceived to be almost hopeless.
The modern practice of mass production and mass consumption has given rise to a negative legacy throughout the world in the form of refuse. In Tokyo Bay as well, a consequence of our urban activities is seen in a landfill of refuse and surplus soil that reaches 30 meters in height and stretches over 88 hectares-about the size of one golf course. Umi-no-Mori ( Sea Forest) fundraising campaign aims to raise funds for tree planting activities that will transform this mountain of waste into a beautiful forest in the middle of the bay. I hopes to collect donations of 1,000 Japanese yen (about 10 US dollars) per person from 500,000 people.
Umi-no-Mori ( Sea Forest) will become a symbol of our recycling-oriented society through which Japan, a country that has a tradition of living hand-in-hand with nature, can make an appeal to the world about the importance of living in harmony with the environment. In view of the fact that landfills exist in all corners of the world, I perceive this island as a forest that belongs not just to Tokyo, but to the world, and through this project, wish to communicate the message of « living in harmony with nature. »

Los Angeles Urban Rangers

« LA-based geographers, environmental and art historians, artists, curators, architects, and others – who aim, with both wit and a healthy dose of sincerity, to facilitate creative, critical, head-on, oblique, and crisscrossed investigations into our sprawling metropolis and its various ecologies. Fashioned as a mobile and site-specific interpretive force, and appropriating the figure of the stereotypic park service ranger, we offer educational campfire programs and guided hikes throughout Los Angeles. »

Dwarsligger – Park of the 21st century

What can we imagine for the park of the 21st century? Do we need full-programmed environments to fulfill our leisure needs or are we still longing for simple contemplation while the rest of the urban landscape gets denser and faster? Close to Schiphol Airport lies an original polder that is under urbanization pressure. We imagined the park of the 21st century here, not as an autonomous plot, but as a connection of surrounding landscapes. The dunes and peat are pulled into the sober polder in order to creat some golden edges. The space within will be slowly transformed into a water machine in order to maintain the void. Within decades this space will be a rare species and the edges congested. In collaboration with BVR and Feddes|Olthof
