Activating Nature with Gross Max

If you have yet to familiarize yourself with the work of Gross. Maxx........your slipping.
The firm lead by Bridget Baines, Eelco Hooftman and Nigel Sampey (formerly of West 8) represent a new generation of contemporary European landscape architecture.

We chose Gross Maxx and Chora Architecture's collaborative proposal for the state of Berlin's Urban Landscape and design competition to represent the firm's progressive outlook on the relationship between nature and technology.

Open two stage urban-landscape architectural design competition

State of Berlin, represented by the Senate Department for Urban Development

Occasion and Purpose:
With the cessation of flight operations at Tempelhof Airport on October 31 2008, Berlin recovers a large inner-city area which was withdrawn from the urban development for decades and can now be developed in stages and reintegrated into the city organism.

Plan for the renewal of the Tempelhof Airport site, Gross Max in partnership with Chora Architecture & Urbanism, Joost Grootens and Buro Happold.

The partnership’s conceptual proposal suggests the development of new city quarters and the construction of a renewable energies power plant which will supply power to the adjacent districts and play a key role in achieving the German government’s targets to reduce CO2 emissions.
