Atelier Villes & Paysages, which grew out of the agency created in 1989 by the landscape architect Jean-Marc Bouillon, was formed by bringing together there disciples: landscape design, town planning and engineering. Today Atelier Villes & Paysages is a dedicated multidisciplinary team of 120 landscape architects, town planners, architects and geographers. They are united by a common ambition: to have an impact on the development and transformation of cities and landscape through meaningful designs and significant spaces where the identity of places is the keystone of the design process. Far from being technical, this team prioritises collective knowledge and shared experience. This book brings together twenty three projects that are the product of these shared viewpoints. It offers a chance to wander 'Between the lines' of landscapes and cities with a diversity of contexts, sites and programmes; and so it reveals the world of Atelier Villes & Paysages, which mixes sensitivity and pragmatism, creativity and attention to detail.
Along with the development of urbanisation, more and more people become urban dwellers. Statistics show that the urban population spend 70%-80% of their times indoors. Indoor gardens could lower room temperature, increase humidity, absorb harmful gases etc. An indoor garden is no doubt a good beginning for a healthier city. Included in this book are some of the latest cases of new design concepts and techniques for the interior landscape. Aimed at architects, landscape designers and interior landscape enthusiast alike.
Some 130 commercial interiors by designers from all over the world are assembled here to demonstrate the latest design ideas in this field. Various types of commercial spaces and functions are included: offices, restaurants, hotels, cultural events, fitness centres, exhibitions and retail stores. All are newly completed and show an imaginative manipulation and interpretation of design. Exceptionally fine photographs and brief introductions further contribute to a comprehensive reference for commercial interior designers.
