An international ideas and realisation competition was held in for the “ Landscape Park Riem” on the southern third of the former airport. The first example is the ‘Landschaftspark Riem’, or the Landscape Park in Riem, located in an eastern city quarter of Munich, which is not completely finished at. Le Riemer Park (également connu sous le nom de Parc de Riem) est un parc paysager d’environ hectares sur le terrain de l’ancien aéroport de.

UntilMunich-Riem was tiem airplanes took off and landed. On the hectare grounds of the airport, this meant setting up trade fair facilities, employment for 13, people and housing for 16, and of course a large landscape park intended to link the new city district to the surrounding municipalities.
The very extensive and multi-level competition programme called for a timely park design that takes recreation, landscape composition and ecology into consideration.
The first prize was awarded to the design by Latitude Nord of Paris.
The landscape architects Gilles Vexlard and Laurence Vacherot understood how to represent the woodlands of the southeast of Munich and the open fields of the northeast in the park in the form of broad expanses of meadows subdivided by forest masses, with the addition of tree clusters, strips of trees and individual trees.
The diagonal structure of the plantings and pathways is oriented on the historical boundaries of the lots that left their imprint on the land before the airport was built.
The park is open in all directions and joins up the new Messestadt Riem with the bordering municipalities. Running east west, a metre-wide strip for various activities extends for 2.
This contains recreational facilities for active uses, with areas for games and sports; in the east, the strip leads to a ten-hectare lake designed for swimming and to two geometrically shaped sledding and lookout hills composed mainly of rubble from the demolished airport.

In the west are four large Sunken Gardens. Other beds of perennial plantings are in the Parallel Gardens. Most of the southern part of the park is designed to closely resemble the natural landscape, mostly consisting of lean grassland, meadows with a wealth of plant species and areas of woody perennials.
Especially striking is the long extended meadow of perennials with an aspect predominantly of iris and mint on the south shore of the lake. Important aspects landscuaftspark the park design are the proportions and perspectives with which it stages the breadth.

The arrangement of the trees creates spaces and sequences of spaces that give the park depth. Over 20, trees were arranged according to a detailed planting plan; some of these blocks of trees were planted on raised beds of earth to provide the experience of different heights.
The pathways are superimposed over the plantings as an independent layer. They form extended straight lines or axes and landschzftspark the experience of breadth.
On clear days you can see the Alps south of the park. One of the important architectural elements in the park is the terrace wall that delimits the strip of activities.
The landscape architect Gilles Vexlard comments: A place that also brings to mind that a park lancschaftspark a human creation and comes about through a human decision.
Not all park visitors so far have made friends with the dimensions of the park and the axial pathways. But when the trees have been given landschaftsspark to grow and when the intended spatial effects and compositions come about, people will appreciate that a generous design that can do without little designed bits and pieces was realised here.
