Urban-scale landscaping: 12 linear park projects


Urban-scale landscaping: 12 linear park projects

Linear parks exist in many different contexts – along rivers, coastal areas or inserted into the urban fabric – and represent a very particular type of public space that evokes the idea of ​​a vector and, therefore, the sense of movement. However, they can offer more than just mobility-related activities and programs, proving to be an attractive solution to the lack of spaces for recreation, contemplation and relaxation in the most varied urban situations.

Below we have collected 12 examples of linear parks built in different parts of the world, illustrated by photographs and floor plans.
