new york-based firm diller scofidio + renfro in collaboration with scottish practice keppie design and philadelphia-based landscape architecture practice olin studio have produced the winning competition proposal ‘granite web’, a city garden for the heart of aberdeen, united kingdom. a fusion of nature and culture, the cultural center is integrated into a three dimensional network of connections evoking the form of an elastic web. extending into the encompassing urban context, the pathways are derived from relevant site lines to support park and cultural activities while merging the existing and contemporary layers of the city. placed upon a historic river site, the permeable parkland will reveal the multi-tiered archeology while connecting the city’s future as a technological hub for art, leisure and commerce.
