island gardens · miami, florida, usa · 2001 - present · flagstone properties · The two towers of Island Gardens offer an
artful alternative to the hotels of Miami Beach and Brickell Avenue. An elegant address for the business traveller, the taller
Lighthouse Hotel takes its cues from the classic yachts of the 20s and 30s; its rooms fitted out in rich timber planking, accented
with brass and adorned with nautical charts and instruments. The sweeping curve of the neighbouring Wave Hotel mimics the
stretched canvas of a racing yacht in full sail. The restrained elegance of its 200 rooms and 50 suites is directly informed by the
lobby’s enlightening collection of Caribbean arts and craft, all deftly displayed under gallery quality lighting.
island gardens · miami, florida, usa · 2001 - present · flagstone properties · The East Coast’s largest waterfront development,

situated between South Beach and Downtown Miami, the island forms a natural meeting place for citizens and visitors
alike. Having tied up alongside the spreading calliper piers its guests will be greeted by an active urban parkland, bounded
by fifteen restaurants, two boutique hotels, a maritime gallery and 220,000 sq/ft of retail. Gazing out across Biscayne Bay to
Miami’s twinkling lights the project’s western prospect boasts a wealth of shaded gardens and public promenades dotted with
fountains, follies and civic art.

the Olympic class liners. Like them it offers a 1st class service, treating guests within its 233 hotel rooms to bars, spas, restaurants
and retail, climaxing with a rooftop pool. The Abercorn Tower is an equally luxurious address, containing 253 apartments
within its streamlined two-hull plan. The sweeping form of its glass rain screen captures the profile of liners’ bows, as they sat
perched upon their bow blocks prior to launch.

phase of the Titanic Quarter masterplan, Lagan Village will provide around 2,000 dwellings across three neighbourhoods. Covering

investment. Designed at a human scale, the village places all the essentials of everyday life within 250 metres; a comfortable 10

surface. The theme of water is continued by a shallow canal running down the tree-lined retail street, animated by the flags of
many nations to reflect Istanbul’s international role as the port where East meets West.

amenities, swimmers and sailors can safely enjoy the waters off Holt Beach, protected by the Merries Reef. A gift to the citizens
of the Sutherland Shire, this plan extends and maintains one of Sydney’s most verdant parks.

urj khalifa sun dial · dubai, uae · 2009 · emaar · Commemorating Dubai’s record-breaking skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa Sun
Dial adds a new icon to the long Islamic legacy of architectural instruments. Set amidst the water park, its cantilevered form
corresponds to the latitude of Dubai, creating a monumental gnomon to record solar time. An oblong aperture permits the sun’s
rays to pierce the cool interior before passing through a ring of fretted numerals to project the hours upon the square beneath.
Here the two-tone paving becomes a calendar, tracing the sun’s analemma as it weaves back and forth across the sky. Harnessing
the sun whilst offering refuge from its heat, this piece creates a focal point from which the Burj Khalifa may be admired.

darling park · sydney, australia · 1991 · lend lease corporation · Occupying a 3.5 hectare site in Sydney’s central business
district, Darling Harbour stands as a benchmark for mixed-use development. One of Australia’s most prestigious commercial
addresses, its status derives from a generous programme of civic amenities that extends the luxury of a 5-star hotel into the
public realm. Nestled at the feet of three office towers, the Waratah Garden’s geometry of paths and parterres traces the floral
emblem of New South Wales. Within its looping walkways are planted over 1,000 plants, trees and shrubs drawn from every

darling park · sydney, australia · 1991 · lend lease corporation · Covering almost 100,000 square feet, the podium of

fauna and folklore of Australia, beneath whose starry gaze unfolds a frieze of 15 panels telling the story of the nation.

forms of its three signature towers rise through a five-storey podium of boutique shops and restaurants, topped by waterside
penthouses. Animated facades of fritted glass and local stone poetically echo the gossamer quality of racing yacht sails as they
glide past the red granite cliffs. Its new art gallery, observatory, and landscaped gardens all complement the progressive programme
of civic art that pervades the scheme. Restoring the promenade as a public right of way, Castle Quay will quickly
become the most accessible, active, and iconic waterfront in the Channel Islands.
arangaroo foreshor · sydney, australia · 2009 · lend lease · Reflecting Sydney’s multicultural makeup, the design of
Barangaroo’s Global Gardens holds a mirror to its population. Arranged along a central Aboriginal narrative, the gardens create

banks up at every turn to provide elevated views across the meadows, allowing cafes and kiosks to be discretely tucked beneath
its coils. A 1000-seater Garden Amphitheatre adds a verdant entertainment venue, while the Southern Cove climaxes in an
architectural ‘splash’ of glass and timber, as the Harbour Star pavilion acts as the official welcome hall.
