Landscape Urbanism Collaboration

Since 2008, Plasma Studio has collaborated with Groundlab–an emerging international practice–exploring Landscape Urbanism as a new mode of practice that responds to contemporary social, economical, and environmental conditions. With an inherently multidisciplinary approach, cities and landscapes are seen as natural processes that constantly change and evolve, therefore requiring flexible and adaptable mechanisms and designs to emerge, to configure and to re-configure the existing and future urban environments.

Groundlab develops its work from a close analysis of the existing and potential conditions on site and utilises the temporal and dynamic forces that are currently shaping contemporary cities: from the social and economic realm to the current environmental and infrastructural conditions.

The practice won first prize in an international competition to develop a new master plan for Longgang City, Shenzhen, China and led the design for the International Horticultural Fair in Xi’an, China–a 37ha landscape design with a wide range of buildings that opened in 2011.
