VOGT Landscape Architects is currently working on the Testplanung for Klybeck Plus, an area in the north of Basel, with Diener & Diener Architekten (urban design) and Gruner AG (traffic engineering). The other teams are led by OMA, Albert Speer + Partner, and Prof. Hans Kollhoff Generalplanung. On 17 June 2017, members of the public are invited to comment on the proposals from the different teams. This feedback will be used as input for the next phase of planning synthesis.  Program

 

The Klybeck area in the north of Basel has changed fundamentally in the last few years. For the most part, the buildings in the area are no longer used for industrial production. The owners of BASF and Novartis have therefore joined forces with the canton of Basel-Stadt to define a new identity and function of the large site together. Working together, these three actors offer the unique opportunity to envision the development of an urban area of approximately 300,000 m²: 285,000 m² of factory space as well as adjacent green spaces, open spaces, and roads.  Further information

 

 

Teams from the London, Berlin and Zurich offices met this June for VOGT’s annual summer trip, this year to the Weald area of outstanding natural beauty in the English counties of Sussex and Kent. Embracing the theme, ‘The Changing Weald Coast’, we took a series of walks along the coastline, exploring three distinct landscape typologies and the agents of change that affect them. We started on the sand dunes of Camber, following the flat landscape of Rye Harbour Nature Reserve to the coast. Chalk dominated our second walk as we traversed 22km along the clifftops of the Seven Sisters from Seaford to Eastbourne. Our final stop was the eerie, constantly shifting, shingle desert outcrop of Dungeness. Here we encountered a transient environment, staunch counterculture, birds and plants, all living in the shadow of a nuclear power station.

We have been selected to work on a 33,500m2 academic facility for University College London (UCL) for its new campus in East London, as part of a team with Stanton Williams, AKT 2, Arup, Soundings, and Plan A.

Stanton Williams Architects will lead the team for the Marshgate site in the first phase of its new UCL East campus which will be built at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in east London.

The first phase of UCL East is expected to accommodate approximately 3,000 students and 625 staff, including academics and researchers, in cross-disciplinary subject areas such as creativity and material culture, future global cities, and experimental engineering. 

All three of VOGT’s offices (Zurich, Berlin, London) came together in end of June 2016 for the yearly office trip, this time to the Bernese Oberland. With “The Alps as a Park” as our theme, we took a field trip to the area that created modern Swiss tourism. We hiked through the Gasterntal Valley, where everyone was encouraged to pick from the “Traveling (Landscape) Architect” toolbox to collect, record, and translate the surrounding landscape. We took full advantage of the dense infrastructural network of the area developped for tourists over the last centuries, moving with ease from train, to cable car, to boat. We also hiked along the base of the mythical Eiger -Nordwand and experienced the roar of Lauterbrunnen Valley’s glacial waterfalls.

After 6 years of planning and construction, Lohsepark will be inaugurated on 09 and 10 July 2016.

As HafenCity's largest park (4.5 ha), Lohsepark offers the public varied opportunities for use and occupation. The park is organised both vertically and horizontally: on the one hand providing a clear separation between the low-lying river and the newly-built flood-proof plateau; on the other hand creating a strong visual axis through the entire site to connect water to water.

Opening program

Tate Modern opened on the 17th June.

The new landscape of the Tate Modern Gallery works with nature and is about nature, with the river and about the river: Its tides, its colours and its sedimentation. As a whole, this informal landscape unites the varied existing and new elements across the site and is comprised of generous public spaces, a large planted embankment and lawn areas. 

Vogt landscape architects have won the competition on new sports grounds in Wattwil, canton of St. Gallen in cooperation with Cukrowicz Nachbaur architects.

 

The design entails the connection of the forest to the river. A gastronomy facility and a bridge are proposed at the junction with the path along the Thur. Upstands between the fields help to bridge height levels and can be used as tribune seats. Trees and greened fences between the sports fields structure the whole area and serve as orientation.

Professorship Günther Vogt, Case Studio Vogt, Vogt Landscape architects

 

Günther Vogt will talk about the relationship between human and nature. Is ‘Nature’ really ‘Nature’ if it is man made? And what is Nature in an urban society? How does lack of Nature and space affect our behaviour? These and many more questions are subjects of the lectures and discussions.

 

Date:                       29. September 2017
Adress:                  Nobelberget, Sickla industriväg 6, 113 54 Nacka, Stockholm

Vogt Landschaftsarchitekten, together with Conradin Clavuot Architekten, win the competition for the emergency department of the psychiatric clinic Waldhaus in Chur.

 

This gives us, as landscape architects, the opportunity to develop the last building block of the facility as a further continuation of the project done by the Kienast Vogt office in 1996.

Together with Olafur Eliasson, Vogt Landscape Architects will present a sequence for the exhibition in Hamburger Bahnhof.

 

„The challenge is in the moment, the times is always now.“ (James A.Baldwin)

 

The second edition of the Festival of Future Nows is taking place during Berlin Art Week 2017 at Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin. This year’s cooperation between the Nationalgalerie – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, Olafur Eliasson and his Institut für Raumexperimente e.V. – as with the festival’s first edition in 2014 – brings together different works by over 100 international artists.

The Meles Zenawi Memorial Park is currently built on a 60ha area in the northern outskirts of the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa. The park, in addition to adding a new recreational space to the city, will be dedicated to the life and legacy of the late Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi. The concept of Vogt Landscape comprehends the park as a link between the city and landscape. Spatial sequences are created, by introducing major clearings as landscape chambers. Ornamental plantings in the context to the architecture display the scale of the garden. Studio Other Spaces, a collaboration between artist Olafur Eliasson and architect Sebastian Behmann, is in charge of planning the buildings within the park. Vogt Landscape Architects has recently traveled to the site in order to control and check on the development of the construction site.

Last week we, together with the Mayor Stefan Wolf and Hellmut Seemann, President of the Klassik Stiftung, presented the project for the surroundings of the new Bauhausmuseum to the public. At the very well-attended event in the Weimar Congress Hall, there was, in addition to a few critical voices, a lot of encouragement to our design. In the meantime, the shell of the museum building shows progress, although only one floor is visible at the moment. A press review about the event and the project can be found here:

On the 24th of August the Helvetia will open its new West Wing at the head office in St. Gallen. Thereby the extension of the head office, which was realised by Herzog & de Meuron in several stages since 1989, is completed. Our task was the integration of the new building into our existing project “Mountains of Flowers” from 2004.

 

Open House: the site can be visited on the 26th of August

Vogt is working together with architects Carmody Groarke on an ambitious masterplan to regenerate Rectory Farm, a 44 hectare area of disused farmland close by to London’s Heathrow airport. The site was used for farming until food safety concerns were raised in 1996. It sits on top of 3.4 million tonnes of fluvial gravel—identified as a sustainable supply for the London area.

Hounslow Council’s planning committee have now approved the scheme to extract the gravel using a ‘top-down’ method while retaining and transforming the wasteland above into an urban ‘green corridor’ and public space, on the scale of London’s great Victorian parks. It will improve connectivity between local residential areas, the biodiversity of a significant area of green belt landscape, and provide public amenity space.
