Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
The Irvine, California’s Orange County Great Park design which made by TEN Arquitectos, has earned the AIA’s 2009 Institute Honor Award for Regional and Urban Design. The park would occupied twice the size of New York City’s Central Park and assumed will bring over 1,400 acres of urban parkland to the city of Irvine and the surrounding region.
The park is planned on the former site of El Toro Air Force base which was a large track of undeveloped land is situated between the Santa Ana Hills to the East and the Laguna Hills to the West.
Orange County Great Park will offer a diverse range of active and passive programs, as well as an active man-made canyon as the the main feature. The canyon will help organize an entirely new topography for the former military base, providing over 60’ of elevation change with the addition of a new river and lake at its base. In addition to the canyon, a great lawn, sports park, botanical gardens, and several arts and cultural facilities including a large outdoor amphitheater will be programmed into the park.
These new programs will create a variety of weekday and weeknight uses as well as several destination functions for regional visitors on the weekends. The park itself will be integrated into the dense neighborhoods that surround it on all edges and will capitalize on the sites proximity to regional rail service and nearby freeways, which link North and South to LA and San Diego.
A tethered helium balloon ride, scheduled to open in January 2009, will be the first completed element for the park and will provide with a bird’s eye view of the retired air station’s transformation into the first great metropolitan park of the 21st Century.
