The city’s green necklace – ongoing

August 23, 2020

Network of green spaces

Status: near completion 

The project situates in a previously built park that has been locked and unmanaged for a long time.  The fences and locked gates will be cut to make it accessible. The project sculpts a serpentine path that begins as a gradient ramp and runs across the landscape. Footpaths when repaired are transformed into stone meadows. The circulating path provides pleasant loops while strolling in and around the foliage. This place is filled with scattered metal benches, broken lights. Those superseded designs will be refashioned, introducing new paths, amenities and refuge. There are already existing groves. The addition of super native plants will help to absorb the pollutants providing ecological therapeutic properties. It will be a place where nature is an everyday reality that entices passers-by with a scene of refreshing calm in the midst of the urban setting. It continues and links with another park drawing people physically, visually, and cognitively.
