Today, architects worldwide are focusing on stainable architecture. They are seeking to minimize the negative environmental impact of buildings by efficiency and moderation in the use of materials, energy, development space and the ecosystem at large.
A lot of manmade spaces have been created in order to add the green lands closer to society. For instance, the incredible Little Island Park in New York City. Heatherwick Studio and Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects. are the designers of this amazing park. The whole process of approval and construction took about eight years.
This park is the perfect getaway place, especially in a time when there are restrictions on traveling. Little island stands up in an iconic series of piles that add the grandiosity to this design. When seen from above, this design makes it look like the island is floating above the water. The construct of these piles withstands extreme river condition.
We can say for sure that this park was a successful project. The design system gave the designers space to include an amphitheater and a stage as well. Still, the greatest feature of this island is its biodiversity. Little Island includes almost 400 different species of grasses, shrubs, trees, and other flora.
Now the park’s doors are open to the public. You can visit Little Island by reserving a spot on their website. However, if you can’t manage to be there, just scroll down below to see some images of this amazing park.
