This Project starts with the acknowledgment of a conceptual challenge which structures the idea that generates the proposal: Which characteristics could an overlook have to be attractive even when all its natural surroundings offer interesting (and similar) views? This is due to the fact that the project is located on the top edge of the crater of an active volcano that has a lake inside of it, which creates multiple viewing opportunities along its surroundings.
Gustafson Porter Shared with us one of their classics. "The work to turn the design of the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain from an artist's impression into reality involved skilled craftsmen from across the UK and groundbreaking high-tech production techniques previously used in the automotive industries."
The draft plan revolves around the existing sport fields in the middle of the park. The pitches will be lined with trees, creating green rooms. Closer to the river the tree lines give way to a loose array of park trees. Along the two outer edges perpendicular to the river, the park is framed by a triple row of maples. The park‘s central area is based on the original parcel pattern of meadows bounded by narrow ditches. Closer to the river the parcel pattern gives way to a loose pattern of islands surrounded by bodies of water.
