In cooperation with Kairos and Mont-Real developers and the architects of POLO and ar-te, VOGT wins the competition for a redevelopment of the north-western part of the city of Mechelen, Belgium. The project site is located nearby the historical city centre, currently bordering on an industrial waterfront. Proposed landscape design is part of a new city neighbourhood and draws on the characteristics of the three landscape types surrounding the area - Mechelen’s urban fabric, site’s industrial heritage and its close proximity to the countryside. The design consists of a series of squares, the redesign of riverfront and dock edge, link to the newly proposed park, new pedestrian and traffic connections, as well as a residential courtyard and rooftop terrace overlooking the whole project area.

 

“Nature versus Wilderness”

 

The abandonment of agricultural land and the general withdrawal from inhabited, cultivated and farmed areas is a growing global phenomenon. Based on selected examples at different scales, the talk deals with the question of how this abandoned landscape reflects economical, ecological, social or psychological problems and where its future qualities and potentials lie.

 

The lecture will take place at the Argiletum, part of the Architecture Department of the Roma Tre University

Lars Ruge, Office Manager of VOGT Zürich, speaks at the symposium «Vertikal- und Dachbegrünung» on the terms of use of greened buildings.

 

Various experts present and discuss the significance of greened buildings for the urban climate, possibilities for promoting biodiversity, the value as design elements and possible combinations with the generation of energy. The conference will take place within the framework of the exhibition «Grün am Bau» and is organized by Grün Stadt Zürich.

After having established the London office in September 2008 to deliver the 2012 Olympic Athletes’ Village, VOGT now celebrates 10 years in London!

 

We look back at an amazing decade in which we have developed many great projects, and established inspiring collaborations.

 

We look forward to the years to come!

After one year of research and preparations the exhibition Environmental, curated by Herwig Baumgartner and Marcelyn Gow, has finally opened at SCI – Arc in Los Angeles.

 

The exhibition was accompanied by a panel discussion with Herwig Baumgartner, Violeta Burckhardt, Izaskun Chinchilla, Vittoria Di Palma, Hernan Diaz Alonso, Enric Ruiz Geli, Marcelyn Gow, Gilles Restin, Marrikka Trotter and Gunther Vogt, which  centered around new perceptions of nature and environment  in a man-made, cultural landscape.

 

Here are some impressions involving the process, the origin of our investigation: The Owens Valley and Los Angeles River, as well as documentation on the displacement of vegetation, setting up of audio/electrical equipment and the final product.

Exhibition / Sci Arc, Los Angeles / 15 June, 2018

 

Vogt Landscape Architects has been invited by Sci Arc in Los Angeles to participate in the exhibition Environment curated by Marcelyn Gow and Herwig Baumgartner.

 

The exhibition examines contemporary attitudes toward environment in a post-digital context. The capacity of constructed natures to produce admixtures of the natural and the synthetic is a focus. The changing character of environment in the context of technological innovation is considered through the projects in the exhibition. Taking into account recent approaches to our understanding of environment and contemporary modes of ecological awareness, the exhibition considers the possibility of environments where qualities are fused with objects not normally associated with them. Sites, objects, and spaces become estranged to engender multiple authenticities and produce a fusion between architectural form and forms germane to constructed natures. A multivalent implementation of environment, one that involves an agile negotiation with the changing character of the ecological in the context of technological change begins  to surface, these environments produce invigorated forms of tangible architectural presence and performance.

On the 20.03.2018 a showcase event was held for the Badeavskiy Brewery project in Moscow. This event marked the official presentation of the project to the public.

 

Located approximately 4km from the Kremlin, between the Moskva River and the linear housing blocks of Kutuzovsky Avenue the 6 Ha site sits in close proximity to the Moscow Business Centre which is the rapidly developing commercial hub of the city.

 

The masterplan focuses on the concept of the forest edge gradient and features a grassed central clearing with small groups and single trees framing views the wider park. This clearing is defined by a band of woodland planting with varying density and heights of vegetation creating a dynamic edge to the open space and human scale atmosphere in contrast to the immense buildings floating above. A hierarchy of gently curving paths link main access points, weaving in and out of the woodland and columns to link the green space with the public plazas and building entrances.

 

A river promenade and urban boulevard flank the site to the north and south creating active entrances that contrast the more relaxed and contemplative park atmosphere.      

 

*This project is a collaboration with Herzog & de Meuron for Capital Group.

 

On the 09.03.2018 the annual exhibition "da! Architecture in and from Berlin " will be inaugurated in Stilwerk, Berlin. Various Projects in the fields of architecture, urban planning, interiors design and landscape architecture have been selected by an independent selection commitee and will be presented along with our projects "Lohsepark" and "denk.mal Hannoverscher Bahnhof".

The landscape concept “Four Clearings in a Woodland Park” creates a new public park for Weimar North. It is structured around classic park elements: spatial sequences, visual axes, topography, open lawns and meadows, as well as use-specific areas. In addition to this, the park is also an important memorial site to the deportation of Thüringen Jews during the Second World War. It is a place of tranquility and remembrance, but also encounter and exchange. The park’s many different spaces provide free and open-ended opportunities for social participation and interaction. As much as possible, remnants of the old cattle auction hall and train tracks are preserved in their present form.

 

 

The Museum für Gestaltung will celebrate it's newly-renovated building on 2-3 March 2018.

Vogt Landscape Architects chose to use concrete furnishings as the base for a moss installation. These furnishings are by Swiss company Eternit, who manufacture the celebrated designs for concrete planters and seats. The different design objects become a growing medium for moss, which expands its coverage of the concrete when environmental conditions are ideal, and retracts at other times of year. In this sense, the installation is not only a celebration of great Swiss design but also an expression of the local weather and seasonal changes.

A modern sports and events arena, with a capacity for 4,000 spectators, and two principally residential high-rise buildings will now be created on the Mattenhof II areal grounds  in Kriens.

 

The expanded open space is designed as a forecourt and promenade at the same time, enabling two basic functions in the Pilatus arena: entrance and lounge, as well as a dynamic transition space between the station and the district.

Vogt with french architects Wilmotte & Associés winner of the competition to design the new Headquarters for Arcelor Mittal.

 

The future headquarters of Arcelor Mittal is at the heart of Luxembourg, a landscape rich with natural features condensed onto a small territory. Our concept for the landscape design aims to reflect on the relationship of the new building with this landscape.

 

Nature and technology are put into dialogue in a series of landscapes throughout the building. The proposal reinforces the iconic significance of the iron industry as firmly grounded in Luxembourg`s natural resources.

Vogt landscape architects have won the competition on new sports grounds in Wattwil, canton of St. Gallen in cooperation with Cukrowicz Nachbaur architects.

 

The design entails the connection of the forest to the river. A gastronomy facility and a bridge are proposed at the junction with the path along the Thur. Upstands between the fields help to bridge height levels and can be used as tribune seats. Trees and greened fences between the sports fields structure the whole area and serve as orientation.
