Akasya Acibadem Central Park Akasya
Istanbul, Turkey
The Park of 13,300 m2 is the “green lung” of a new urban development of large residential complexes, and is the focus of a new shopping mall. It provides a gradual transition between residential areas and the mall. The landscape design, using elliptical shapes, reflects the same geometry as the entire project, creating a unifying whole; green circles as green "rooms" within the Park were added. These green "rooms" propose different activities, providing different relationships within the site. There is a pond, open-air theatre, and mazes and play areas. Open and shady spaces alternate with each other. The vividness of the colours of rows of trees of the same type line the landscape, creating circular "rooms" with different colours.
