The Scenic Path along Igualada’s old gypsum mines, selected for the new Landscape Architecture Europe yearbook.

Landscape Architecture Europe (LAE) presents the sixth yearbook on European practice of landscape architecture: Second Glance. An independent jury of practising landscape architects from different European countries has selected the 63 projects that make it up, among which is the Scenic Path along Igualada’s old gypsum mines.

The jury has highlighted the project for its frugal yet efficient and beautiful design, in addition to recognizing how it provides an active way to reconnect to the past in this post-industrial site and facilitates the process of reclaiming the site through natural regeneration and appropriation by the public.

Landscape Architecture Europe (LAE) is a foundation that seeks to enhance the dialogue in landscape architecture on a European level by publishing a triennial yearbook. Produced for the LAE Foundation and European Region of International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA Europe), the books aspire to be the definitive critical review of the state of the art of European landscape architecture.

The Guixeres Path in Igualada is a landscape recovery sensitive to the preexistences and values of the site, based on the modernization of conventional solutions and with an optimal ratio of resources. / © Jordi Surroca
