Landscape project wins prize at the Romanian Architecture Biennale 2014
in the section on urban planning
In June 2014 we reported on greening the towers, among others on a project for a roof garden included in the Le Notre database. This project won the prize of the public space and urban planning secion at the Romanian Architecture Biennale. The jury appreciated that unlike other vision projects in urban planning this was a realised project.
