Ogden, Utah, USA

by Grupo H,  2016

landscapes of Ogden is made out of four simple, but powerful elements:
▪ rigid orthogonal street grid with irregularities that break the uniformity
▪ rural roads that escape the city grid and blend into the natural landscape
▪ Weber & Ogden rivers
▪ Wasatch mountains that set the backdrop for the whole city

This proposal creates an abstract interpretation of the landscape that defines the city of Ogden, as its biggest treasure is the natural environment that surrounds the city.
The grid is transformed into footpaths. The mountain is created to host most of the park’s activities, and a small river with a lake snakes between the trees.
