GEO was commissioned to design the landscape at the W Hotel Marina + Quay, Dubai. The design is intended to be enjoyed when looked at from above and within, with a focus on providing a mixture of shade structures and vegetation for relief from the heat. The site is located on a creek that was once known for its thriving pearl industry. The shade structures and placement of light fixtures are meant to encourage the reflection of light around the site as a way remember its history. .

GEO was tasked with the creation of a master plan for Al Mashtal, located in the middle of Abu Dhabi. Careful consideration was given to the historical, ecological and economic context of the site with a special focus on producing a comfortable climate for pedestrians

ArquitectonicaGEO contributed to the master planning of Lulu Island, a man made Island adjacent to Abu Dhabi. GEO proposed a pedestrian friendly, sustainable island with a high level of accessibility to the water through 5 km of beaches and 30 km of pedestrian friendly waterfront

The Skygarden is also home to art installations, an amphitheater, pavilions and for waterfalls visitors to enjoy, and the path provides needed connections between different parts of the mall.

Taikoo Hui Mall/Mandarin Hotel Residences starts off the world tour. It was the first enclosed mall in the world to achieve LEED Platinum Certification! The ground level plazas and podium gardens, raised 3 stories from the ground, provide both physical and visual connections between various amenities across the site. .

Did you know the @PAMM's waterfront proximity to Biscayne Bay required the building to be elevated above the regulated flood and storm surge levels, which allowed the parking garage to be placed below the museum.
.
.
This arrangement facilitated an unprecedented design that integrates parking and planting beds with irrigation system water storage, storm water infiltration, temporary storm surge storage and aquifer recharge.
.

The innovative porous-floored parking garage, along with rain gardens, has been designed to capture rain water and funnel it into the ground water system, thus reducing local flooding and storm water runoff into Biscayne Bay. This last innovation saved significant project funds from being spent on injection wells. Photo by Robin Hill (@hill.robin)
Metropolitan moments at the @PAMM. The building architecture of the Perez Art Museum Miami expresses the raw materials of concrete in its many forms, therefore we selected native plants to display the raw materials of the Florida subtropical landscape as a complement and contrast to the geometric architecture.

It's an honor to have worked on the Perez Art Museum Miami as the project's landscape architect. We're reposting this wonderful image from the ASLA's @landscapearch account! Thank you for highlighting our work!

@PAMM: Resiliency by Design, designed by @ArquitectonicaGEO, in Miami, Florida. This sustainable art museum (building architecture by @herzogdemeuron) was awarded the ASLA 2015 Honor Award.
Swipe ◀️ / As promised from our last post, we're giving you a tour of our HQ studio. At the heart of our headquarters is a Florida native species courtyard. We use this space to relax, have lunch, work outside and it also serves to bring in natural light into our studio interiors and provide picturesque views. In our next post we're taking you inside, stay tuned!
