Integration of landscape and architecture

We're exited to see that Al Bayt Stadium's Park, designed by our team, opened the public on 11th February. It provides the local community a fantastic hub for sports, play, socialising and relaxation. It's one of Qatar's largest parks at 2 million m2, and provides a green oasis around this 60,000 seater stadium. The stadium, one of Asia's largest will host the semi final of the 2022 World Cup.

"The intention was to use the vegetation of the area but create the spaces and linkages to give our clients interest in the garden,” Glasson told Landscape Architecture Aotearoa. “You have got a wonderful viewing area looking out to the Southern Alps near Mt Cook, and you want to encapsulate these views as part of the landscape".

Christchurch's seaside hot pools will become reality

Two GHLA Landscape Architects, Sarah and Erin have been working in a team to create an exhibition for Christchurch's Festival of Transitional Architecture. The exhibition, ‘Biodiversity Beacons’ will create 7 beacons, each focusing on a specific insect found in the city and the associated plants which it needs to survive. The exhibition will increase people’s knowledge of the connections within our surrounding environment, and the complex systems which are all a vital part of our world.
