March 2013

What did the GREENinckers find beautiful or funky this month? The beautiful : Annamari posted an animated artwork created in Tokyo for Finnish TV – it was screened on TV in 5 second slots, but you can gorge yourself on the whole 200 seconds in one go! The funky : Elize found this inflatable bridge with built-in trampolines. It has apparently been built, but I couldn’t find out whether its users are quite as acrobatic as those shown in the graphic. And then there’s an article from Archpaper about Parklets in LA, they’re beautiful AND funky. I posted a link to the Ball-Nogues Studio’s website – they do all sorts : mostly hanging stuff, some shiny stuff and a Janet Jackson video set.

We got published by Taschen – Freedom Park made it into Landscape Architecture Now! Actually, it seems like that came out last year, but they forgot to send us our copy, so we came accross it in Exclusive books looking for student book prizes. UP held their annual student prize-giving early last month, and James handed over the GREENinc prize for the best overall student in the landscape architecture programme in 2011 and 2012 to Dayle Shand. We also got published on Landezine – always an honour – they featured our work at Forum Homini boutique hotel in the Cradle of Humankind.  Coming up on the 27th of this month, Anton will be at Conversations on Architecture at Melrose Arch, get there if you can!

STOP PRESS : PG has just received an e-mail from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design telling him that he has been accepted into their Masters of Landscape Architecture in Urban Design programme. He seems to be having trouble breathing. Wow, PG, are we proud of you!
