Landscape architecture firm Gustafson Porter + Bowman recently released its plans for Taikoo Place, a public park in the center of Hong Kong. The main focus of Taikoo Place will be promoting biodiversity, with flora selected based on scarcity and nativity.
Though Taikoo Place will be surrounded by office buildings in downtown Hong Kong, it has been granted an impressive amount of space. Encompassing 69,000 square feet, the public park will hold 70 different species of trees, 53 of which will be native to Hong Kong.
Aside from the natural benefits of biodiversity, Taikoo Place's flora will raise awareness for the Fung Shui woodlands, a culturally significant protected forest located on the island of Hong Kong.
