Forest Sport Park wins Best Landscape award WAFChina

11 December 2020

At the very first edition of the World Architecture Festival China, Forest Sports Park was granted no less than two awards. During the live ceremony, the project was first rewarded with the WAFChina 2020 for Excellent Design, later followed by the overall Best Landscape award. This new park for play, sport and relaxation is the result of a joint design by LOLA Landscape Architects, Taller architects and Land and Civilization Compositions.

The Shenzhen area is all about innovation, therefore the ambition was to make a park that is as innovative as the city itself. A park that can adapt to the constant evolution of sports and where we can constantly contribute to a more resilient nature. An elevated red path gives universal access to the forest. With a steady soft slope, connecting ramps and elevators it provides users from all age groups a safe and easy way to visit the mountain. To enjoy the views of the surrounding city and the ability to immerse yourself in the thick forest. The Forest and Sports Park forms a slow transition space between the city of Guangming and the forest reserve.
