LANDSCAPE TRENDING

Landscape Architecture Trends

Landscape design trends evolve over time, in line with human needs, technology, and style. Each year, the submissions for the Malaysia Landscape Architecture Awards (MLAA), are an indicator of the latest trends, which are shaping our identity. Listed below are the 10 trends for 2017.

2017

01 Holistic Living System This type of design serves as a total living system for organisms such as wildlife, plants and humans alike. This system exemplifies sustainability within a development, with each component complimenting the next.

UNIV.360 PLACE

02 Rediscovering Memories Memories of a bygone era; images of quiet villages, lush gardens and natural environments from our childhood are now reflected in landscape design components, creating a nostalgic twist to new designs.

MANGALA RESORT & SPA


LANDSKAP

03 Urban Farming An increased price of produce has inspired the latest urban living trend: urban farming initiatives. These community driven efforts create spaces for social interaction, therapeutic value for the elderly and, synergistically, supply vegetables and other needs for daily cooking efforts.

TWIN ARKZ

04 Conserve Natural Resources It is increasingly important that landscape architects preserve and enhance our natural resources such as water, air, wetlands and forests as the efficient management of these elements will contribute to the citizens’, and the nation’s, wellbeing.

SETIA ALAM WETLANDS

05 Inspiring Life Modern designs should provide inspirational spaces for recreation, whether it is to play, to live, or to be creative. They should serve multiple activities and requirements, especially within heavily developed urban areas.

RAFFLESIA HILL PARK

06 Green Connectors Green connectors and green networks link together parks, key activities areas, and urban development patches, to form a larger green space that allows communities to connect and, at the same time, promotes wildlife diversity and ecosystem security.

6 STORY LANDSKAP

07 Putting People First Landscape planning and design should place people first in order to create a productive and useable space, inline with local needs. Community studies and engaging local individuals throughout the design process should be a priority.

BUTTERWORTH BAHARU REGENERATION PLAN

08 Landscape is Knowledge Themed gardens and parks are becoming increasingly important as they serve as outdoor spaces for learning. Parks with diverse collections of plants and wildlife are ideal for the public to learn about local flora and fauna.

PUTRAJAYA ETHNOBOTANY PARK

09 Forest Treasure Preservation of forests has become a key priority in most developments, especially those located next to such ecosystems. Forest parks can equally serve as recreational grounds for a community, and as a safe haven for local wildlife species.

DAMANSARA FORESTA

10 A Park Above There is increasing evidence which is witness to the commitment of developers to create and provide huge green spaces, equivalent to parks, within high rise developments. Green spaces are no longer limited to ground levels, but are also located on mid levels and rooftops, raising the bar for exceptional landscape design.

IDEO Q CHULA-SAMYAN

Ideo Q Chula-Samyan Trop Design This commercial/condominium project cleverly uses curved lines and shapes to form the landscape space concept. The front plaza is formed by a series of curved lines and irregular shapes, embedded in the multi-level ground. The vast reflection pool forms the main feature of the landscape, punctuated by trees. The landscape concept expands towards the rear garden in a terrace form. On the podium level, the pool design concept also adopts the concept of curves and irregular shapes to form terrain and levels which complement the architectural form.
