Monte Laar Central Park
Landscape Architect: Martha Schwartz Location: Vienna, Wien, Austria
The Central Park is the heart and focal point of the housing project Gartenstadt Laaerberg. The overall premise for the design is to establish the park as a separate strong entity within the project, providing a striking visual identity and an unforgettable experience.
Martha Schwartz, Inc. proposed a configuration of elongated sculptural landforms, lines of columnar trees and bands of different materials that work together to emphasize the linear quality of the park. These elements are of the same geometric and formal arrangement as the overall layout of the Gartenstadt.
