Arles Luma Parc des Ateliers

Bureau Bas Smets

‘The project involved transforming a sterile, desolate and desert-like site into a beautiful, lush and comfortable public park within a short period of time by speeding up the natural evolution of the surrounding landscape typology. With great knowledge of microclimatic conditions, the park is skilfully designed to develop as a self-sustaining living organism. The park offers an effortlessly diverse experience to the public, with lowered temperatures in summer and warm sunspots in winter, and if open-source documentation is created, the project has the potential to be a future reference of great importance.’ Dorte Mandrup
