How can you make your home more cosy – and stimulating – starting from the outdoors? Let's take a look at some valuable tips for spending a safe, relaxing summer at home.
Designing a sloping garden requires several considerations such as control of the water, a particular focus on the safety of the materials and furnishings chosen, as well as the plants planted. Conditions which at first sight don't encourage the creation of a green space. But where there's a problem, often there's also an opportunity.
Landscape architects and garden designers are well aware of this, but in sloping gardens they see the possibility of creating systems with a great aesthetic impact.
To rethink and reinvent outdoor areas, we need to understand how the pairing “architecture and public spaces” changes, a process that is already under way and that in the immediate future will accompany the community along the path towards a new normal. Let's find out how by looking at a few good examples.
How do you design an outdoor space? We asked architect Andrea Boschetti, founder and artistic and scientific director of the Milanese studio Metrogramma. We talked about the origins of the relationship between architecture and outdoors, analysing the concept of outdoor space and trying to grasp the nuances that characterise it, as well as the evolutions it has gone through over time.
