Above Par Park
23. April 2018 - 0:00
Inaugurated in 2010 and conceived by the internationally acclaimed architect Oscar Niemeyer, the official seat of the Government of the State of Minas Gerais, Brazil consists of six large buildings, set in the second biggest park of the City of Belo Horizonte.
The administrative city is the only one in Brazil that is highly committed to sustainability, with buildings that have many systems to conserve natural resources.
Award winning landscape architects Flavia Renault and Thiers Matos, in charge of the park’s landscape design, have been recommending the use of TerraCottem for years.
To give this prestigious project the best possible odds to achieve above par plant survival rates despite the sandy soil on site, TerraCottem was incorporated into the plant pits of the palms, trees and shrubs. They commented: “TerraCottem acts as a life insurance policy for the plants. It not only saves replacement work and money that can be caused by plant mortality but helps us achieve a mature garden faster.”
