Jardins de Joan Brossa




Jardins de Joan Brossa





Jardins de Joan Brossa
El que durant mes de 30 anys va ser el Parc d'Atraccions de Montjuic, avui es un gran espai verd cobert d'una vegetacio esponerosa i molt mediterrania. Els Jardins de Joan Brossa conviden al passeig, al descans i al joc. Val la pena anar-hi i passar un dia de lleure, voltats d'un paisatge natural i frondos, amb zones assolellades i altres d'ombrivoles, i amb magnifiques vistes de Barcelona.
Els Jardins de Joan Brossa son un excel·lent exemple de la recuperacio paisatgistica i ambiental d'un espai mitjancant la consolidacio del paisatge vegetal ja existent i la potenciacio d'un aspecte natural i un punt silvestre.
A mig cami entre un parc forestal i un jardi de ciutat, els Jardins de Joan Brossa agafen caracteristiques de tots dos, especialment les propies d'un bosc. L'aspecte de natura espontania dels jardins es mes accentuat a la part inferior, on aquestes caracteristiques es reforcen pel predomini de la vegetacio. Una passera elevada de fusta s'hi endinsa i permet contemplar-la com si estiguessim dalt d'un balco.
Tant la topografia com la vegetacio preexistent constitueixen per si mateixes un paisatge molt atractiu. Tot i el desnivell, els jardins son de facil acces. Aixo es possible gracies a dues rampes que enllacen tot el recorregut principal. Solament en alguns racons, mig amagats entre els arbres, encara es conserven trams de les escales de pedra de l'antic parc d'atraccions, amb bancs de pedra encastats a la paret del pendent. A la zona superior de l'antic teatre hi ha un mirador amb grades de formigo, al qual s'accedeix facilment a traves d'una rampa.
Espai de connexio
La seva situacio ha convertit els Jardins de Joan Brossa en l'element de connexio entre diversos jardins del Parc de Montjuic. Just a sobre, una mica mes avall del castell de Montjuic, hi ha el Mirador de l'Alcalde, i l'itinerari que travessa el jardi en sentit est-oest permet enllacar directament amb els Jardins de Mossen Cinto Verdaguer, mes enlla dels quals trobem el Jardi de Petra Kelly - Viver Tres Pins i el Jardi Botanic de Barcelona.
Els jocs infantils
El caracter ludic, infantil i d'esbarjo de l'antic parc d'atraccions segueix present en aquests jardins. Hi ha tres arees de joc en les quals s'han instal·lat elements per a totes les edats, alguns de molt originals.
La diversio en equip esta representada per un joc de sorra i aigua que recorda els enginys dels miners de La febre de l'or. Esta al costat de l'acces que comunica amb els Jardins de Mossen Cinto Verdaguer, i calen uns quants nens i nenes per jugar-hi: uns, bombejant l'aigua, i uns altres, traginant la sorra cap a unes safates on es barregen els dos elements.
La musica tambe es un aspecte ludic molt important. En el cami que travessa el parc hi ha "coixins musicals" que emeten sons quan es trepitgen, i en una de les arees de joc per als nens i nenes mes petits hi ha dues estructures de fusta: una mena d'orgue i un balanci-teclat, que permeten experimentar amb el so.
Quant al jovent amb ganes de grimpar, te al seu abast una zona amb tirolines i jocs de trepa.
Per acabar de passar el dia
Tot i no pertanyer als Jardins de Joan Brossa, just a sobre hi ha una immensa esplanada on trobareu un bar i tambe algunes taules de picnic. S'hi pot accedir des d'un petit acces que hi ha dalt de tot dels jardins. Uns quants platans molt grans cobreixen d'ombra algun tros de l'esplanada, a sobre la qual encara n'hi ha una altra de tan gran o mes. Son terrenys que havien format part de l'antic parc d'atraccions.
Despres de recorrer els jardins, de jugar i de passejar, aquestes esplanades son un lloc ideal per acabar de passar un dia festiu amb tota la familia. Son tan grans que s'hi pot jugar tranquil·lament a pilota sense molestar ningu, o deixar que corri el gos. Si respectem els que comparteixin l'espai amb nosaltres, hi ha lloc per a tot i per a tothom.
Vegetacio
La vegetacio dels Jardins de Joan Brossa es variadissima, bona part de la qual es va plantar quan es va construir el parc d'atraccions. Hi ha grans catifes de vivaces i de graminies, d'especies molt variades, que donen continuitat als recorreguts dels jardins, arbres i palmeres molt grans i extenses masses arbustives.
Aquests jardins son rics en coniferes, com els cedres, els pins i els xiprers. Algunes especies que trobem en aquests jardins -algunes poc frequents a Barcelona- son el cedre de l'Atles (Cedrus atlantica i Cedrus atlantica glauca), el cedre de l'Himalaia (Cedrus deodara), el cedre del Liban (Cedrus libani), el pi blanc (Pinus halepensis), el pi insigne (Pinus radiata), el pi de l'Himalaia (Pinus wallichiana), el pi maritim (Pinus pinaster), el xiprer (Cupressus sempervirens), el xiprer d'Arizona (Cupressus glabra) i el xiprer de Monterrey (Cupressus macrocarpa i Cupressus macrocarpa 'Golden').
Hi ha arbres tan mediterranis com l'olivera (Olea europaea), l'alzina (Quercus ilex) i el tamariu (Tamarix gallica), i d'altres amb floracions tan ornamentals com la mimosa (Acacia dealb

The Kleeberg Residence




The Kleeberg Residence





3 Riverside Drive, Upper West Side, Manhattan, New York City, New York, United States

The Kleeberg Residence, designed by noted architect C.P.H. Gilbert and constructed in 1896-98, is an elegant French Renaissance Revival style town house exhibiting a combination of Gothic and Renaissance details characteristic of the period of Francois I. It is located on a prominent site at the intersection of West 72nd Street and Riverside Drive, and is one of four grand town houses remaining at that corner. Built in accordance with restrictive covenants in an area long intended for high-quality residential development, it is an impressive town house designed for that area. Designed with an American basement plan, the KLeeberg Residence is faced in limestone and brick and displays a wealth of carved detail and an elaborately decorative roofline. Its striking design and appearance give the town house a grand presence at the gateway to Riverside Drive.

Development of the Upper West Side

The Upper West Side, known as Bloomingdale prior to its urbanization, remained largely undeveloped until the 1880s. In the early eighteenth century, Bloomingdale Road (which approximated the route of present-day Broadway) was opened through the rural area, and provided the northern route out of the city then concentrated at the southern tip of Manhattan Island.

The Upper West Side of Manhattan was included in the Randel Survey of 1811 (known as the Commissioners' Map) which established a uniform grid of broad avenues and narrow cross streets in Manhattan as far north as 155th Street. However, years elapsed before most streets on the Upper West Side were actually laid out, some as late as the 1870s and 1880s, and land was subdivided into building lots.

Improved public transportation contributed to the growth and sustained development of the Upper West Side. In 1864 the Eighth Avenue horse car line was extended to 84th Street; previously the only transit facility was a stage coach line along Bloomingdale Road (renamed the Boulevard and later Broadway in 1898). In 1879, the horse car lines on Eighth Avenue were replaced by street rail service up to 125th Street, and the Ninth Avenue (Columbus Avenue) Elevated Railroad was completed with stations at 72nd, 81st, 93rd, and 104th Streets.

Development of the West End (the area between the Boulevard and the Hudson River) began slowly, due, to a large degree, to the hesitation of would-be residents, but, by 1885 the area had emerged as the part of the city experiencing the most intense real estate speculation. The expectation that the blocks along Riverside Drive and West End Avenue would be lined with mansions kept the value of these lots, as well as adjacent land, consistently higher and developers were willing to wait to realize profits from the potentially valuable sites. The real estate developers, including the West End and West Side Associations, ultimately stimulated the demand for houses in the West End. Real estate brochures and the local press drew attention to the territory west of the Boulevard, emphasizing the scenic quality of the setting and the availability of public transportation. The biggest boost to the development of the West End was the creation of Riverside Park and Drive (a designated New York City Scenic Landmark).

Riverside Drive and West 72nd Street

In 1865 the first proposal for converting the land on the Upper West Side along the eastern shore of the Hudson River into an ornamental park was presented by Parks Commissioner William R. Martin. He and his colleagues believed such a plan would initiate the flowering of the West Side by drawing residents to the area and by encouraging further real estate development and the extension of rapid transit lines. The purchase of the park site and initial plans were approved in 1866. The drive, as proposed at this time, was a straight 100 foot-wide road. Commissioners soon realized this plan was impractical due to the existing topography. In 1873 they hired Frederick law Olmsted (1822-1903), already distinguished by his role with Calvert Vaux (1824-95) in the successful design for Central Park, to propose an alternate design.

Olmsted's design for Riverside Park and Drive evoked simplicity and elegance. Considering the pre-existing topography, landscape, and views, he designed a drive that would wind around topographic features, would be comfortable for horses and pleasure driving, would provide shaded walks for pedestrians, and yet would give easy access to real estate bordering it on the east. Olmsted's plan was adopted by the Commissioners but the park was not executed under his supervision. Actually developed betwen 1875 and 1900 by designers including Calvert Vaux, Samuel Parsons (1845-1923), and Julius Munckwitz (1829-1902), Olmsted's original design was not adhered to in its entirety, with paths and plantings being added by the later designers. The Drive begins at West 72nd Street and today continues north to approxima

This was the first place we stayed at in Morocco and it was fantastic! The sights, sounds, smells and other worldness of (the) Marrakech (medina) can be quite overwhelming at first so this was a great place to come home to. Olivier, the owner, was very helpful in giving us tips, arranging anything we needed (including the airport transfer and a spectacular tour into the atlas mountains), and spoke great english which definitely comes in handy when your french isnt so great. The place itself was beautiful, tranquil, clean and had a perfect roof terrace with a lounge and plungepool to cool off in with a beer after a sweltering day. The rooms have been decorated beautifully and lovingly, have a/c, are quiet (unless the lounge music is switched on upstairs, which could be slightly annoying to some when too loud. they will switch it off at request though) and the beds and shower are good. Do keep in mind that it's not uncommon for riads to have doors without locks on the rooms. There wasnt a moment we felt unsafe though as al the staff seemed very trustworthy (and very very friendly). The breakfast was served on the roof terrace every morning and was a rich mixture of pastries, local pancakes, baguette, fried eggs and fruits. The riad serves dinner too which we didnt make use of but appearantly was very good.
The location of the Dar Najat is ideal. It's in a nice and quiet part of the old medina, about a 5 minute walk to the Djemaa el Fna (which a staffmember showed us on the first day). Also, its around the corner of a little square to which cars can get. This comes in handy when arriving/leaving with your luggage and the same for tours by car/4x4 or arranging a taxi.
All said and done, and in comparison to other riads we stayed in during our two week trip, this was a definate highlight which I would very much recommend.
