OTO landscape architecture is, together with B-architects, preselected to work on housing block and courtyard in Antwerp. We are looking forward to this project.
OTO landscape architecture will transform Damsterplein into a green, attractive and climate adaptive square. This transformation will open up new perspectives for this underused square which is currently coping with problems related to heat stress, water, safety and pollution caused by traffic. The proposal show a transformation into a lush green square as central meeting place in this part of Groningen.
OTO presents proposal for Landgoed Gravenstein which contains a community garden combined with care and a tiny housing development. More info soon.
What kind of new sustainable logistic landscapes can we imagine? And how will they perform? OTO will be working on this challenge and results will be presented at the Landscape Triennale this year. For this research by design we will team up with Buro Moon and C-A-S.
Can climate change be the inspiration for new typologies? OTO starts a feasability study to combine a waterhouderij and receational facility. We will investigate the potential of new combinations between land use and waterstorage above and underground.
