"Lines serve the opening up, the bounding, the structuring of Landscape: taking on form as canals, paths, wall edges, acoustic barriers, forest aisles and visual axis. Straight lines, oscillating lines, fat lines, thin lines, broken lines, built lines, imagined lines, single lines, clusters of lines: lines are a fundamental form-giving element of Landscape Architecture. In the projects by the Landscape Architecture practice Häfner / Jiménez, lines are deployed as constituent elements of unusual lucidity and sharpness, dividing between water and land, nature and culture, inside and outside. The design intent is for lines to be creative agents, that qualify and differentiate surrounding environments, and that give character to newly made open space. As built elements they stage special places, while leaving the remaining landscape undisturbed, or as organisational interventions they manifest the divisions between areas, achieving clarity through sharpness of contrast. They envision a stage and open up distinct places. As a strategy, the line sits, like a precious intarsia, as usable, intensified open/public space in a wider stretch of land."
