CULTURE

We understand that cultural

landscapes evolve along with

the demographic changes

around them

ENGAGE

Good design considers all

user groups and improves

community and stakeholder

relations while encouraging

ownership of their environment

Landscape Architecture Expertise

INNOVATE

We strive to know the latest

best practices, using green

infrastructure to address

multiple site goals

At IBI Group, we believe that the most creative and dynamic landscapes can also be the most

resilient and valuable. The sustainable cultural landscapes we create and encourage are a

result of our integrated design process, which pairs designers with sociologists, engineers

with botanists, and planners with historians.

With a worldwide team of close to 150 landscape architects working with

some 3000 colleagues in related fields, IBI Group is recognized as an

emerging global leader in the fields of landscape architecture and sustainable

planning. Several of our design team are LEED-certified or are pursuing LEED,

and our studio office environments assist interns on their way to licensure.

IBI Group Landscape Architecture has put together a substantial portfolio

of award-winning projects ranging from large-scale regional developments

and UNESCO national parks, to urban mixed-use projects, waterfront

master plans, and ecological urban parks and complete streetscapes.

Our integrated design approach brings the disciplines together to

collaborate on ideas, refine best alternatives, and work towards a design

solution for our clients, balancing goals of sustainability against costs.

We must understand tomorrow’s challenges and employ solutions today

using best practice green infrastructure technologies. This is the new normal,

and will create and encourage legible landscapes and inspiring places.

IBI Group Landscape Architecture feel responsible to ask the best

questions, and provide the best solutions. These landscape strategies

can shape the future for generations to come.

INSPIRE DIALOGUE

Our strengths for you are not only the answers that we know, but the

important questions that we ask: How can the project gain asset value

and achieve long-term economic, environmental, and social dimensions

of prosperity, balance, and quality of life? We respond as designers by

applying an understanding of natural processes to the needs of cultural

landscapes, whether regional or local

Master Planning-Urban Design

1

Creating a vision for our clients is at the heart of the IBI Group Landscape Architecture

practice. We see the landscape as a key matrix informing the built form. Movement strategies

and identification of patterns and trends set the stage for inspiring, valuable, and resilient

master plans.

The firm has a host of master planning projects to its credit, including

downtown master plans, campus master plans, revitalization

programs, ‘all seasons’ resort development plans, design codes,

and guidelines. IBI Group has also undertaken numerous mixed-use,

transit-oriented development and integrated planning studies and

master planning exercises which have guided and shaped major built

projects globally. Our strength lies in methodically understanding the

municipal framework and in working with the existing policies and

guidelines while developing innovative master planning concepts.

Firm(S) IBI Group, China

The urban design for Beishu Village is located within the 66 ha Beishu

District, in downtown Shenyang.

Located west of the government municipal plaza, a traditional

commercial area was desired by the local government. The master

plan focused on the traditional folk culture and regional identity, but

added value with the inclusion of an iconic commercial complex and

hybrid tower.

The overall master plan is divided into three parcels for easy

project planning and phasing: comprehensive commercial, cultural

commercial, and memorial plaza.

One of the areas most impacted by the January 12, 2010 earthquake

is located close to the central core of Port-au-Prince. The sloping 34

hectares crowned by hill top Fort National were occupied by derelict

housing with no running water, sewer or electricity. In reconstructing

this area, the aim is to provide relocated people with a vibrant, friendly,

and secure living environment with basic public utilities and services.

The structure of the project can easily be replicated at different scales

in other reconstruction areas with similar development constraints.

IBI/DAA Group was asked to design this model project. The 34

hectares will accommodate 4,000 family housing units in small

buildings of three to four stories straddling the slopes. These will allow

the relocation of between 20,000 and 25,000 people. The heritage

street leading to Fort National acts as a spine for the area, which is

subdivided in neighbourhoods linked together and with the city below

by a network of landscaped spaces. Shops and neighbourhood

services are available along the spine and at the bottom of the hill.

The overall master plan is divided into

three parcels for easy project planning and

phasing: comprehensive commercial, cultural

commercial, and memorial plaza.

Streets, alley ways, and pedestrian walkways follow the contour lines,

while stairs allow pedestrians to go from one level to another.

Moving people and goods first is the start of sustainable and effective transit-oriented

development. IBI Group Landscape Architecture provides award-winning TOD services to

enhance the long-term success of transit networks. We recognize the interconnectedness

and symbiosis of convenient transit and surrounding land use value.

While TOD considers how best to accommodate residential, retail,

and office facilities in dense, compact, mixed-use developments that

champion pedestrian/cycle friendly environments and transit ridership

over private automobile usage, streetscape define how pedestrians

interact with the urban and infrastructure elements. Our Landscape

Architecture multidisciplinary team interacts with land use and

transportation planners; traffic and infrastructure engineers amongst

others and apply an integrated approach to solving the problems of

our clients and the demands of our ever-urbanizing planet. Services

include creation of policy documents on the design and program

elements that best promote transit orientation, station area plans,

neighbourhood designs, station design, streetscape planning,

roadway design, urban design, policy and guidelines development,

market assessments, PPP, and implementation.

IBI Group was retained by the City of Kitchener in 2007 to redesign

the core streets in the downtown district, which involved developing a

Streetscape Master Plan for King Street. The plan was based on the

principle that an investment in high-quality public realm will serve as

a catalyst for private sector investment, intensification and renewal of

the City Centre District core. The project was completed in 2010, after

two years of construction.

Innovative design features include; removable bollards to allow

for a flexible sidewalk/parking and road closures, water run-off

infiltration planters, and semi-mountable curbs to improve pedestrian

accessibility. Other key elements include; doubling of the urban street

tree canopy, two revitalized public plazas, various seating types,

bike racks, improved lighting, and public art. The project received

the “Green Streets Canada – 2008/09 Award” by Tree Canada and

Simply put, the square offers a minimalist space, uncomplicated

aesthetics, and great visual and sensual qualities: light and shade,

energy and static character, linearity, and depth. The resolutely

modern language is abstract and urban, and the composition and

colours of the square are uniform.

Bands of pavers and strips of planting cover the ground in a linear

manner. The street furniture also follows this pattern. Honey-locust

trees form a canopy, filtering the sunlight for the comfort of users.

With no evident interruption in the design, a vehicular lane and

IBI GRoup

walkways connect the building entrance with the corners of the

adjacent streets.

A roof terrace - This installation is the result

of sustained, coordinated work. The parking

level below the square was carefully studied

so that it connected well with the street

while offering a sufficient depth of subsoil

for planting.

The experience of memorable public spaces is an essential link for healthy urbanism.

As our cities intensify, our need for open space networks and urban ecology is increasing.

Our landscape architects understand this balance and our creation and encouragement of

these places brings measurable benefits to park users.

Plazas and streets, like all public places, bring people together and

bind communities. Our projects, whether they are transformed urban

zones or streetscapes, urge people of all ages to leave their footprints

at these places. They develop an identity that is unique to each site

and place and sets the framework for future development to ensure a

cohesive signature that will stand the test of time.

Renewal of Dorchester Square

Montréal, Québec, CA

Landscape heritage – Dorchester Square’s restoration and

enhancement is guided by a deep appreciation of its evolution,

reflecting nearly 300 years of history. This project and its overall

design is inspired by Victorian landscaping. It encompasses the

restoration of four monuments from the City of Montréal’s art

collection, and returns the luster to this high profile urban quarter,

which commemorates the Canadian confederation.

Landscape forms – The project proposes to reconfigure the structure

of the traditional road system through realignments and changes in

street widths, in order to restore the urban form and accommodate

more sustainable modes of transportation, including the addition of a

bicycle path and space for a new tramway lane.

Commemoration – To call to mind the old cemetery and outlines of

from the graphic representation on maps of Catholic cemeteries – is

distributed in staggered rows on all paved surfaces of the square.

We all want to go down to the water – many cities are taking another look at their waterfronts

and riversides and seeing how investment in these areas leads not only to greater property

values and attractive cultural destinations, but how greener infrastructure can protect

shoreline assets and achieve multiple site goals.

Group Landscape Architecture comprises a design team made

up of landscape architects, architects, engineers, planners, and

arborists. We have been collaborating on urban waterfronts and

shoreline restoration projects for over thirty-five years. Our waterfront

master plans are geared towards adding value to the surrounding

land, while integrating recreational trails, public spaces, parks,

and civic platemaking. We understand that visions for waterfronts

go beyond a simple, quick-fix, “beautification strategy” to create

aesthetically beautiful spaces. Our aim is not only to create world

class, ecologically sensitive waterfront showcase projects, but also

weave an implementation strategy, spur revitalization, and bring

economic benefits to the surrounding communities.

Québec City, Québec, CA

In connection with the 2008 celebration of the 400th anniversary

of the City of Québec, this project consisted of redeveloping the

perimeter of the Bassin Louise in the Old Port of Québec.

The goal was to create a celebratory atmosphere and a suitable

backdrop for the temporary installations erected in 2008. This project

also ensured the sustainability of the public spaces that became the

legacy of the Québec 400th anniversary celebrations.

The objectives of the redevelopment focused on the respect for

the maritime environment, the interpretation of the remnants of the

maritime past, and the reinforcement of the connection with the

surrounding neighbourhood. Today, this redevelopment allows the

residents to rediscover a site in which the city’s industrial, heritage,

and leisure activities overlap.

Between 2005 and 2008, IBI/DAA Group was responsible for the

river. In 2009, we were asked to take charge of the enhancement

of the last urban section of the Saint-Charles River between the

Scott to Marie-de-l’Incarnation bridges, including two footbridges.

This $2 million plus project involved restoring the banks of the

river, creating fauna habitats, and integrating riverfront cycle and

pedestrian paths.

IBI GRoup

The narrowness of the waterfront public domain, inclined topography

in places, and erosion control during construction were the key

challenges facing the landscape architects. Concrete walls were

replaced by banks lined with indigenous plants. Wood and recessed

lighting was used for boardwalk on spiral piles. The old lampposts

were recycled as supports for works of art.

Caernarfon, Gwynedd, Uk

This is one of the most adventurous and exciting new square designs

in the U.K. The creation of a successful, clean, open, shared, surface

space enables clear views to the famous castle which is a world

heritage site. This £3.5M scheme is deliberately simple in approach to

provide as uncluttered a setting as possible to the attractive Georgian

buildings surrounding the square as well as the castle. Natural slate

and granite materials from the region have been used.

IBI GRoup

The square is designed to take bus, coach, and service vehicles with

no road markings. Existing statues have been relocated within the

square and new lighting, signage, and furniture are installed. A vibrant

new fountain was placed adjacent to the war memorial and Victorian

church at the eastern end of the square to create a counter-point to

the mass of the castle.

Transforming the square into a space befitting its location at the

heart of the town, adjacent to the castle, is considered pivotal to the

regeneration of the local economy.

St Helens, Merseyside, Uk

Kendal is a market town in the South Lakes; it has many distinctive and

unique features, charming historic buildings, a major river, a diverse

network of streets and yards, a hilltop castle, and views of the rolling

countryside beyond. Today Kendal is also one of the key service

centres in the Lake District; ‘however’; it is seen as underperforming

and opportunities to increase footfall to shops and visitor attractions,

and entice new business, are key objectives for the town.

IBI Taylor Young designed the new retails streetscape for St Helens,

transforming the tired, under-performing town centre into a vibrant,

high-quality destination. Church Square is a new civic square and

lighting has enhanced the night-time environment.

IBI GRoup

The Design Framework aims to lift the offer in the town, utilising

elements which are uniquely Kendal. An over-arching framework looks

at accessing the town centre, strengthening character and key views

and providing a safe and legible environment. This is underpinned

by place-making principles; space-specific design guidance and

illustrative opportunities for improvements. Detailed information on

materials, planting, and maintenance provides practical guidance on

delivering a co-ordinated response to the strategic objectives.

In addition to the framework, IBI Taylor Young were commissioned

to design three new spaces in the town, two significant civic spaces,

the Market Place and Fickle Street (an events space) along with

the redesign of New Road Common, changing the space from car

parking to special riverside space.

Mixing services and uses in the planning of new communities and the redevelopment of

existing ones create a synergistic landscape and activate the urban sphere. IBI Group

landscape architects recognize how this dynamic approach to urbanism creates more

walkable neighbourhoods, and fosters innovative space design for the future city.

is a paradigm shift in the way we want to live our lives

today. Transit-oriented developments, downtown living, being a

environments etc. are becoming more important than our

dependence on the automobile. Our focus is to create places where

people enjoy living, working, and recreating.

and sustainability. The first projects to stem from the Renewal Plan

are the Centre for Entrepreneurship, Learning and Innovation Building

(H-Wing) and four distinct and dynamic plazas and landscaped

spaces: The first space, Entry Plaza, directly facing Fennell Avenue

and the Centre, creates a new “front door” to the campus meant to

welcome and orient students, staff and visitors alike. Also, the red

public art “MOHAWK” sign is located prominently on the plaza visible

from a pedestrian and vehicular perspective. The Convocation Green,

framed by three campus buildings and the Entry Plaza, serves as

the new convocation space and informal gatherings. The Cafeteria

Court is a sunken space with an amphitheatre that acts as an outdoor

extension to the campus cafeteria. Intended uses are for informal

gatherings, performance space, and outdoor classrooms.

Last the Terrace Court located north of the Cafeteria Court serves as

an outdoor extension to the glass corridor that provides opportunities

for informal gathering and learning. A grove of birch trees and a

meandering stone wall also add interest to the space.

Port Authority commissioned DAA to revitalize an existing public site

in the city’s historic waterfront. The inspiration for this major project

was to recognize and celebrate Québec’s long-standing vocation

as a trading port. The area is part of a multi-use waterfront park and

serves as a public gathering place, event and concert venue, outdoor

exhibition space, and reception area for cruise ship passengers.

The park, which is designed for flexibility, incorporates an outdoor

amphitheatre and strong water features.

These elements emphasize the physical and historical link with the

St. Lawrence River. The conceptual approach focused on creating

attractive and animated spaces, interconnected water features,

harbourfront activities, and reconnecting the site to the city at large.

John Lennon – The public work of art commemorates the song by

John Lennon, “Give Peace a Chance”, written and recorded during

his famous bed-in with Yoko Ono in Montréal in 1969. With the theme

of peace, this artistic installation follows the rhythm of the winding

“Serpentine” trail that starts at the Peel Entrance to Mount Royal

Park, and is part of the restoration of an 8-acre area within the park.

This work of art reinforces the design by Frederick Law Olmsted,

landscape architect and designer of Mount Royal Park and Central

Park in New York, aimed at providing a varied experience in an

art-enriched, natural environment.

Artistic installation – Positioned at the base of a majestic rock

formation, the artwork is made up of 180 long, narrow slabs set

into the ground, forming a crescent around the third turn in the

meandering “Serpentine” trail. The curve of this scenic rest stop with

its ornate lettering is edged with a wide band of stone. The backdrop

of shrubs and greenery directs the eye towards the city spread below,

and towards the rockface towering above.

IBI Group, on behalf of Concord Adex, prepared a design for this major

public plaza located immediately south of SkyDome (now Rogers

Centre). The facility was designed as a public space, to allow for

parking of chartered buses during major events. As part of the design

process, the space was defined by a galvanized steel canopy and

screen which makes up part of the public realm, screens the buses,

and houses a major public art installment designed by Matt Mullican

of New York City. The public art portion of the work, which in places

reaches 12 m in height, is highly visible from different view-points

and through visual iconography describes the character of Toronto’s

Waterfront. The canopy was constructed in Spring 2005, with the

public art installation to follow.

IBI Group was retained by the City of Kitchener in 2007 to redesign

the core streets in the downtown district, which involved developing

a Streetscape Master Plan for King Street and the City Centre District.

The plan was based on the principle that an investment in high-quality

public realm will serve as a catalyst for private sector investment,

intensification and renewal of the City Centre District in the downtown

Kitchener core.

The project is successful in working with the Downtown BIA as well

as co-ordinating with several of the major events that take place in

the downtown core including; Cruising on King Street, Bluesfest, and

Oktoberfest.

The project showcases several innovative design features including;

removable bollards to allow for flexible sidewalk /parking and road

closures, infiltration grates to direct stormwater runoff to planter beds

and semi mountable curbs to improve pedestrian accessibility. Other

key elements include the doubling of the urban street tree canopy,

generously wide sidewalks, two revitalized public plazas, various

seating types, bike racks, and public art that all promote a vibrant

pedestrian-friendly streetscape.

Recently the project was recognized with a “Green Streets Canada”

award by Tree Canada which recognizes Canadian municipalities

“who have successfully demonstrated their innovation and creative

approaches in helping green Canada through urban forest programs”.

The project has also been awarded the Community Places Award

Cultural landscapes are geographical areas that have been modified, influenced or given

meaning by people, and that have been formally recognized for their heritage value. As

landscape architects, our role is to interpret and connect these valued land use histories

through contemporary design.

The integration of character-defining elements and land patterns is

a process respecting spatial and visual relationships and traditional

practices. The resulting landscape preserves existing value and adds

meaning to the user experience.

Peel Entrance

Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted in 1874, Mount Royal Park has

over five million visitors per year. Prior to its restoration, one of the

park’s entrances, located at the top of Peel Street was a desolate and

tenuous link into the park.

IBI GRoup

In keeping with Olmsted’s tradition, the mountain’s own characteristics

were tapped to regenerate the sector. Tying the project into the

geological, hydrological and vegetative richness of the mountain, the

Peel sector redesigned through the careful management of existing

natural and cultural elements. Relying on structuring elements that

respect both Olmsted’s original layout and the existing ad hoc footprints

imposed by years of use, the project put forward an eco-hydrological

water management strategy to control the significant runoff through the

site while developing ecosystems which encourage biodiversity.

Located in the heart of Québec City, the Cartier-Brébeuf national

historic site commemorates the place where Jacques Cartier, the

explorer who discovered New France, spent his first winter 475 years

ago. The plan to redevelop the park centred on dismantling an old

storm sewer to bring the Lairet River back to life and enhance the

site’s appeal to tourists. Groupe IBI-DAA’s landscape architects have

recreated the natural path of the meander shore and rebuilt a new river

landscape primarily using native plants that are present upstream. A

sculpture invokes the hull of Jacques Cartier’s ship, la Grande Hermine.

The access to the Interpretation Centre was improved by rerouting a

bicycle path and by making connections to the pedestrian pathway

along the tourist corridor of the St. Charles River.
