Ghaem Garden Complex
Kerman, Iran
On the western outskirts of Kerman, the Ghaem Garden Complex consists of roughly 300 hectares designated as 'open space' by the municipality. Site improvements and landscaping included the unearthing of a significant historical artifact, a brick dam from the c.10th century AD. The land also included a pine forest, a cemetery, historic shrines, a motocross track, an army munitions depot and a police parking lot. The city had intended to build a beltway through the land as well. In the public input and discussion process, the highway was rerouted, and the designation of open space and the improvements to the land emerged as the preferred solution.
