Roberto Burle Marx (1909-1994) was a Brazilian landscape architect, ecologist, naturalist, musician, painter & print maker.

I found this fun Top 10 Landscape Designers list (on which he ranks #2)

Thanks for the inspiration Dhani

#Sao Paulo #parklets 

Trees can be used to emphasize space or as a functional interaction with the people.  An elm tree with it’s tall, branching form will emphasize the space which is under it for human interactions while a edible crabapple, a shorter tree, will allow a functional connection with and between people.

McDonald’s has been forced to open its first ever restaurant with a turquoise coloured sign after city planners said the signature yellow sign would be too garish. Officials in Sedona, Arizona told the fast-food giant they were unable to open a restaurant with the trademark yellow logo.This is due to the city’s strict regulations which prevent buildings from ruining the picturesque view of the desert.

Scott Outdoor Amphitheatre, Swarthmore College, PA. Designed by Thomas Sears and completed in 1942. 

2ft high retaining walls are made from layers of local schist slabs and the randomly spaced trees are Liriodendron tulipifera (Tulip Tree) and Quercus alba (White Oak).

I love the idea of a ‘turf proscenium floor’ and it looks like a great place to learn. I can imagine this kind of space would conform to the theories of design laid out in ‘A Pattern Language’ by Christopher Alexander…
