Verdant city center to frame Scotland’s historic architecture in Aberdeen

February 07, 2012 |

The team of Diller Scofidio & Renfro, Keppie Design, and landscape architects Olin Studio has won the international design competition for the City Garden Project, which will transform the center of Aberdeen, Scotland, into a 70,000-sf greenspace. Eight distinct gardens, a cultural and arts center, and two plazas will be set within the context of the city center’s existing architecture. The design reinterprets the topography of the city and provides significantly more usable space for the city to promote its historic bridged streets, arches, vaults, and balustrades.
