Considering land and landscape the merging of design and environment can turn an area from grey to green. The concept of going green is played out in landscaping, blueprinting and sizing more greenery than the normal planter, tree and evergreen placement. The work of “Birla Aurora Adapts Landscape Architecture, the New Trend in Commercial Realty” is where new thinking can be delivered.
Real estate and owners understanding the importance of the green impact for customer, environment and ecosystem on price and the concept of location-location-location is relevant. The work on facilities and efficiency along with greening up structures lead to healthier environment, cleaner air and higher productivity.
Planned green is relevant to smart grid and infrastructural continuity and resource optimization. The ability to have water coalesce into rain gardens that prevent overflows, waste and aid environmental security are one fluid nexuses.
The opportunity to plan for greener infrastructure changes the environmental overlay on transportation, facilities, resources, play-work-and-live spaces and designing new corridors of arts, commercial and industrial. The relationship of “community and the civic authorities in partnership with the development authorities and various developers and commercial houses to encourage people to congregate and celebrate landscape in an energy rich built environment.”
“Landscape architecture has various faces in India and is considered to be an ideal time to make improvements and upgrades to the holdings. As important as structural and interior refurbishing can be, a building’s exterior and surrounding property create that all-important first impression. Today, the modest exterior landscaping projects include adding visual, aesthetic and practical dimensions that transform a nondescript commercial property into a handsome and desirable acquisition. For larger facilities, landscape architecture includes redesigning the outdoor parking lots and making the parking area more attractive to passersby and users.”
The knowledge of what the world can teach about green infrastructure forced and constrained by environment-climate impacts can lead to innovation and efficiency. The work of commercializing green can lead to the focus on environmental friendly cost per square foot on each project.
The purpose of greening is not only a feel good proposition but a science of harvesting ecological platforms on grey structures to reform communities to rich infrastructures guided by landscape design and green flows from point A to Z.
