Thomas Heatherwick Creates the Al Fayah Park in Abu Dhabi

Considering that Abu Dhabi is in the middle of the desert, it makes sense to try and offer some green space in the area, which is exactly what Thomas Heatherwick is trying to achieve with his Al Fayah Park Design.

The interesting part is that the canopy area blends in perfectly with the desert surroundings, as various areas are separated to create that dry, cracked effect. Below, however, is where the green space starts for the people of Abu Dhabi. Walkways are placed throughout the design, with grass on either side and even lush water areas for people to relax by. Considering the insane temperatures the city can get to, having this sort of refuge could be a much-welcomed addition for the people here. Photo Credits: designboom, heatherwick
