Today, in occasion of the Milano ArchWeek, we had the opportunity to go deeper in this way of thinking art as acupuncture of the landscape during the lecture “Non solo architettura” with Andreas Kipar and Thomas Schönauer. The interesting dialogue started 6 years ago between the architect and the artist goes on an increasingly challenging way!
INTERNATIONAL ART COMPETITION FOR 3 THRESHOLDS: ART AS ACUPUNCTURE OF THE LANDSCAPE
“Artists are like chinese doctors. They search for the energy spots, interconnect them in order to generate even higher energy. Their sculptural interventions become acupuncture of the landscape.”
Today the artist Thomas Schönauer enlightened us with his words about the deep relationship between art and landscape during the presentation of our landscape enhancement project for Ca' Corniani, Genagricola’s estate.
Last week we were in Tampere with other 27 partners of our H2020 project UNaLab: the project, financed by the European Commission, fosters research on nature-based solutions and implementation of demonstration projects in cities. Within the next 5 years we’ll strive re-naturing neighbourhoods in Genova, Tampere and Eindhoven and support 6 followers cities to follow our path.
We are proud of our landscape enhancement project for Ca' Corniani estate at Caorle! The project will be presented on 15.06.2017 at La Triennale di Milano during the ArchWeek.
Finally after 2 years of work we inaugurated the green wall located at the entrance to Krombach, which will be greened with moss and will bind the accumulating fine dust. Consequently the wall will have the same purifying effect of 4000 trees! We wonder how the noise barrier will evolve and we want to thank all the participants at the opening party!

With Karmenu Vella, EU Environment Commissioner; Thomas Kufen, Lord Mayor of Essen; Simone Raskob, Head of the Department of the Environment and Construction as well as project lead of European Green Capital - Essen 2017; Dr. Uli Paetzel, Chairman of the Executive Board at EMSCHERGENOSSENSCHAFT and LIPPEVERBAND and Dr. Andreas Kipar, Architect and CEO LAND Germany GmbH.
Last friday we had the honor to receive a delegation of mayors and assessors from the biggest cities of Germany and to talk with them and with the assessor Pierfrancesco Maran about new challenges for our cities.
Thanks to everyone for such an interesting debate!
Starting from today, the 3rd parcel of Portello Park is open to public!
Charles Jencks together with Andreas Kipar outlined the morphological modelling of the hill, which creates a system of diagonal continuity with Monte Stella, the famous and historic hill created by Piero Bottoni after World War II.
Last week we had the pleasure to be part of the opening of the New Nespresso Store in Cannes, of which we have designed the new Greenery Conception.
The Brand wants to introduce the Green as a fundamental part of the Store and LAND Suisse led them realizing the story of the Coffee Growing Tropical Ecosystem as an icon of sustainability and as a cozy place to stay and enjoy the coffee experience!

Airolo is a historic hub in the heart of the region of Gottardo, where the almost uncontaminated Bedretto Valley meets the Leventina Valley. During the years this area was fragmented by different linear infrastructures such as the railway, the A2 motorway, the canalization of Ticino River or the construction of the Airolo basin. Therefore the connection between the two sides of the valley is very hard. The entire planning concept for the redevelopment of the Airolo valley offers the ideal vision of a restored district where the fragmentation produced by infrastructures is replaced by a vast naturalistic and leisure zone. Airolo can emerge from its infrastructural cage and revalue its landscape trough airy, flat green-fields, new woodland areas, functional and sport fields, an accessible and restored riverbank.
We are going on working on the project Expo 2020 Dubai and we are proud to announce: BIM revolution started in LAND!
Con grande piacere abbiamo partecipato al dibattito del 12 aprile a Cesano Maderno organizzato dal sindaco, nonché presidente della Provincia di Monza e Brianza, in cui abbiamo avuto la possibilità di presentare alla comunità gli esiti dello studio per il masterplan paesaggistico-ambientale del fiume Seveso svolto per BrianzAcque e CAP Holding. Riteniamo sia fondamentale confrontarsi con le istituzioni e i cittadini all'inizio di questo processo di riavvicinamento e rivalutazione dei nostri fiumi. Ora è necessario procedere con le applicazioni sul territorio per sfruttare al meglio le sinergie presenti in questa sfida di recupero dei nostri ecosistemi.
Qui il comunicato stampa della presentazione.
We are proud to see our project matching reality.
Outdoor landscape met indoor landscape in a sparkling conversation with Andreas Kipar, Giovanni Sala and Barbara Benz.

Sabato 1 aprile apre al pubblico il primo tassello di oltre ottomila metri quadri del Parco Biblioteca degli Alberi. Il parco fa parte del masterplan Porta Nuova, una delle più importanti trasformazioni urbane a livello europeo della quale lo studio di architettura del paesaggio LAND ha progettato gli spazi aperti, a favore della permeabilità urbana attraverso una maggiore densità e per la mediazione tra la scala della città e la scala della persona. “LAND continua ad impegnarsi a lavorare sugli spazi aperti milanesi, dove sempre più abbiamo il desiderio di indirizzare il nostro pensiero progettuale dalla realizzazione di green infrastructure alla conformazione di social infrastructure”, commenta Andreas Kipar, architetto paesaggista e fondatore dello studio LAND.
Milan’s metropolitan region is affected by severe flooding during heavy rain events because of the high sealing rate of urban areas. Among the measures planned by the regional government, there is a wide retention area that has been planned as flood control device, which also creates high quality natural areas and reconnects slow-mobility routes and recreational spaces inside a regional park.
The project includes the overall implementation of rolling basins that will be temporarely flooded by Lura river between Bregnano and Lomazzo and arranges the future collection of water drained from the Groane channel.
LAND is co-organizing with IEFE-Bocconi University and Green City Italia an international conference in collaboration with UN-SDSN Cities, Green Budget Europe and Urban@it, supported by European Commission Representation in Milan.
The conference aims to set the framework to state the value of ecosystem services provided by nature in strengthening the ability of cities to adapt to climate change and make the transition to a more healthy and sustainable future. The conference will convey experts, representatives from EU, International Organisations and national governments.
Friday 7th April, 2017 - 9.00 a.m. > 4.30 p.m.
Aula Magna Università Bocconi, via Gobbi 5 - 20136 Milano
The participation is free, subject to registration through Bocconi University's website. The program and link for registration will be announced soon.

Nel libro pubblicato da CLEAN Edizioni “Storie di Lagni – dalla Campania Felix alla terra dei fuochi”, Alfonso De Nardo, con il contributo di Michele Di Natale, Andreas Kipar e Gianfranco Nappi, racconta di un territorio in attesa di trasformazione. Una trasformazione già auspicata dal masterplan di LAND del 2011che partiva dalla valorizzazione del corridoio ecologico dei canali.
This is the name of an ongoing campaign to promote the realization of the new Stadio di Roma and with it the requalification of the area of Tor di Valle. LAND has developed a landscape design that pays tribute to the roman landscape respecting its past as well as its future role in the city of Rome. This project is an opportunity to collectively reimagine and reinvent public spaces, turning them into inspirational areas at the heart of a community.
