Dror’s master plan encompasses five separate areas: the plaza, an open space for gathering at the entrance of the park; the loop, a series of swings and hammocks that sway above the forest bed; the pool, giant ball-pits inspired by turkish spice markets; the chords, a winding, elevated footpath that forms large loops with integrated trampolines; and the grove, a maze-like trail populated with sculptures that relate to the landscape. finally, a cube-shaped fountain sends water down all four of its sides.

Existing green spaces in istanbul are few and far between,’ continues dror. we set out to create a park that dissolves the anxiety and fear that often accompanies an unfamiliar environment through a network of conditions that fosters unconditional love. we imagined the most profound experience delivered through the lightest touch; an effort that preserves the lush forest and leaves every tree in place, as mandated by the city.’
