I'm sorry but those examples look pretty conservative to me. Their just conservative parks with a "crazy" decoration. They're far from being edgy/ultramodern.

Parc de la Villette it's 33YO and looks much more "edgy" than those examples. So does Parc Andre Citroen that is 22YO.

Singapore's Quiet Park is edgy, so is Osaka Namba Parks, and Acros Building Park by Argentinean architect Emilio Ambasz.

What does make a parc modern or classic? Anyway, I have an example,from Rotterdam, that keeps us busy.

The first example is the "Schouwburgplein" (Theatre Square)


The square is surrounded by the main concert hall of the city, (de Doelen, in back on the photo) the largest cinama, (just left of the picture) and the Stadsschouwburg from Quist, which I personally hate, but that might have to do with the experience I had to have for a school project with experimental theater over there, not something you want to endure when you are a teenager.

Under the square is a large parking. The large red lampposts are sometimes (when it is not broken or sealed of) movable by the public with a sort of remote control panel.

It is designed by the quite famous designstudio West8.

Critisisms are that it is not very 'gezellig' the hard to translate Dutch word, which comes closest to cosy. Also the steel floor is quite slippery, especially when wet, a situation not uncommon in the Netherlands.
