“the garden is simply spectacular. The mature, fully-landscaped rooftop spreads over 1,600 square feet on multiple levels with fascinating architectural elements, making for intimate seating areas, sensory dining opportunities and infinite possibilities for entertaining. A rare, sensory retreat in the heart of the city.”
I love plants and I love cities. A garden like this would be paradise for me
I want to go to Spain and I want to go HERE!

Hailing from Manchester, Joe Synkro’s talent for creating elaborate, emotive & intellectual soundscapes over any chosen tempo is second to none.

Thomas Woltz of Nelson Byrd Woltz reveals how the landscape firm used native plants and some bold structural moves to make a contemporary Connecticut house feel asif it really belonged in its hillside surroundings. (Gardenista)
I love this because it exemplifies just one of the things we do as landscape architects - we go beyond what people commonly perceive as our job (aka, designing gardens/mowing lawns) by incorporating structural elements or manipulating landforms to enhance the landscape. A building never (or rather, should never) sit atop a landscape as though someone copy pasted a 3D model into the real world. Landscape architects bridge the gap between the built environment we humans create and the natural environment that we are fortunate to have and to which we must pay more respect.
