Public Space as Landscape Experience of Happiness: A Surprise Public Garden amidst Water and Large Blocks of Wooldland

Georgi, Neratzia Julia ; Constantinides, Christos ; Vissilia, Anna-Maria (2015)


The suggested ecological concept of urban green space is a series of gardens by the water edge connected through a network of footpaths with large blocks of woodland, creating therefore a natural framework at the city's waterfront perimeter. Nature reserves are also located around the edge of the city and linked via the woodlands to man-made ecosystems which penetrate into the urban fabric and encourage wildlife. It is a design scheme about how multi-sensory experiences can be merged with landscape architecture in order to integrate humans into spatial landscape elements creating meaningful places, and producing distinctive memorable designs which harbor extraordinary experiences that promote happiness.
