The proposal is based on sustainability principles such as rainwater collection, energy production through biogas, natural ventilation and solar energy, providing a green lung for the wider area. A diverse mix of local plants, specialist gardens, meeting places, sportive activities, cafes and playgrounds take place throughout the park. A multi-functional auditorium for 4000 people is located below the park. It can be flexibly re-arranged for concerts, lectures, sport and entertainment events. • In collaboration with ARUP
