Unlike with architecture, trying to capture the spirit of a landscape in digital media can feel downright impossible. Still images often don’t do the ever-changing landscape justice, but we think that this serene flyover video of Topiaris Landscape Architecture’s Tagus Linear Park does a pretty amazing job. Filmed with a drone in Portugal’s Póvoa de Santa Iria, this short and hypnotic video captures the genius loci of a post-industrial beachfront park and is perfect for those who can’t experience the space in person. Outfitted with solar powered lighting, Tagus Linear Park comprises 3.7 miles of trails and recreational space, much of which was created from recycled materials such as old shipping pallets and tires. The soothing, almost hypnotic flyover is set to a piano cover of The Pixies’ Where is My Mind.
