Elevated Forest Park Includes a Trampoline to Bounce Among the Treetops

via My Modern Met

A sky park seems like something you’d find in a fantasy novel, but Studio Dror have envisioned it as a reality for Istanbul. They’ve created the plans for Parkorman, which, among other things, features an elevated playground with pathways, swinging hammocks, and a giant trampoline. This unconventional concept works with the city’s lack of green space and is to be located six miles north of the city center.

Traditional parks often have expansive grass fields with trees peppered throughout. In Istanbul, however, every tree that’s there now must stay in place. So, to preserve the forest, Dror “imagined the most profound experience delivered through the lightest touch.” For them, that means a design that thinks vertically.

They state: “Our masterplan for Parkorman is a web of possibilities; a living system of places for visitors to explore. Instead of dictating one’s path through the park, visitors write their own experience. Numerous non-linear pathways, like calligraphy, weave through the existing woodland, surprising people with unexpected discoveries along their journey.”
