Pavings are used to set a rhythm and erase the boundaries between man-made structures to create a common space for reunion, contemplation, or passage. Water and greenery become the focal points that help establish a hierarchy of the space while paving remains as the central element of the scheme.
Green corridors can be compared to a river, in the sense that they represent limits and a course to follow from one point to another while enjoying the landscape around you. What makes a difference is the fact that you can define your own pace in a corridor, instead of only following the stream. You can contemplate all that surrounds you and enjoy the sensations that come to each of your five senses. Water is a complement to all the greenery and sets a rhythm and a pause to the vibrant colours of nature around you.
