SUTRO BATH San Francisco, CA Seal Rocks island can be seeing through framed views provided by Cupressus macrocarpa - Monterey Cypress, picturesquely shaped by coastal conditions and wind. The hide-and-reveal technique inspired by Japanese landscape architecture motiffs led to this colorful plan layout where topographic changes occur mainly along pathway.

Procession-like experience to mourn tsunami victims can be felt by visitors at various wandering stages inspired by views.

For you I mourn today, tomorrow my brother will miss me. Bring me peace thy healing rock. Bring me peace.

The views framed by vegetation forces visitors to meditate for those who have lost their lives by tsunamies. Nearly 9000 peoples lost their lives as a tsunami followed the Great Sumatra earthquake on December 26, 2004. http://www.iitk.ac.in/nicee

Schouwburgplein Rotterdam Lines complement this fascinating landscape design with minimal plants but mechanically moving by inserting a coin in a slot. This urban park designed by Adriaan Geuze and West 8 Architects in 1990 and built in 1995 lies on the roof of a parking garage in the heart of a highly industrial city intended to provide outdoor space for kids and adults.

The 472 by 272 square-foot site lights up at night from beneath to suggest that the roof floats as a nebula of lights. The constantly changing environment with moving structures emanates the idea of a living landscape. Wood and rubber materials predominate on the east side of the site because it’s predominantly sunny. A summer water feature with a stream, a geyser and hidden sprays is embedded in granite.


Wurster Courtyard UC Berkeley Mixed media used to develop a final photoshop design of altered reality. A Rhino computer model originated from a CAD plan layout. Subsequently, a photography was lined up using Rhino to finally bring the entire work into Photoshop to present an intended real image where atmospheric factors play a role.

TIM THYBAUD An attemp made to simulate Thybaud’s altered perspective drawn in pencil and rendered in watercolor -left, combined with an industrial setting in Berkeley to remind us of the city’s affluent industrial time.

FLY, FROGGY, FLY! Every garden has a frog, either living or ornamental. Nevertheless, homeowners forget the fact that frogs hate immobility. Thus this particular frog wants to fly away to the unknown world. The drawing on the right, however, originates from a dream put in a spatial context.

Pencil & Ink Different pencil tones create an amorphic landscape -left, while ink and paint intend to experience dramatic changes in the landscape world of black and white.

California Love Ink and watercolor contrast the California landscape drawn in pencil where a single sign has been multiplied to allude suburban sprawl of the mid 20th century. A city by the bay reminds us of the love for its landscape.

Vast ocean mirror of jades, caress you with soft winds. Winds that sail along, swaying to the rhytm of the music. Beyond these walls there is fire, fire that burns the earth. Landscape that swings with the wind vortex, yet water softens and adorns it where you walk, talk and laugh.


Landscape on the Move Contour line drawn with a single size pen portrays variations in the landscape as seen through the car’s mirror.

Collage & Mixed media This collage responds to a reading about city space where the left side represents Camorra, a corrupt city in Geneve in contrast to 19th century France with its collosal architecture and a capitalist symbol. The series of pencil drawings to the right intend to show a moving landscape.

Mixed media Charcoal drawings express a utopian environment (bottom left) after a destructive event had taken place in a dream -top left. An exploration of Hortus Conclusum or enclosed Garden led to the production of a Renaissance landscape with expressive features throughout the main corridor (top right). The San Francisco Flower Conservatory brings out colorful events all around the site to draw visitor’s attention.

Ecological studies led to this design driven to promote green areas at the Sunset Elementary School in San Francisco. Currently, asphalt pavement covers more than 90 percent of recreational outdoor space for students. The proposed plan will bring nature closer to children while still provide interactive outdoor activities to promote landscape and wildlife in students’ life style.
