C3 410: Hypernatural Landscapes for Future Generations
C3 410: New Projects / Hypernatural Landscapes for Future Generations / Community Markets: Links in Civilization
Nature and people coexist seamlessly only when human intervention creates hypernatural landscapes that preserve the environment. The four examples in this issue are then extensions or intensifications of their surroundings. These include structures by CHROFI in a replanted tropical rainforest in Australia, gad’s Mountain & Sea Art Museum in Yunnan, a protective canopy over a cave and archaeological site south-west of Beijing, and the Art Biotop Water Garden by Junya Ishigami + Associates. This issue also examines six local market halls as a key architectural typology that can contribute to and define a community, including profiles of both heritage structures and new buildings.
