Week 12 _ The rooftop park connects to the street eight levels below. It also has a role to be a transition zone for the people from the city to the forest in its own way.

Imagine if your next trip to the forest allowed you to meander hidden pathways into the treetops, swing on hammocks, and bounce on giant trampolines, like an oversized playground for grown-ups. Architects Studio Dror envisioned a bold new urban park experience for a “city with no Central Park” — Istanbul, Turkey. Studio Dror’s goal was to “design a love story between people and nature” for their new “Parkorman” park, with numerous pathways, swings, hammocks and trampolines scattered…

The architects wanted to allow natural light and free access from outside to all the apartments…and that’s the result!

Danish firm Bjarke Ingels Group has teamed up with French studio Silvio d'Ascia Architecture to design a loop-shaped station for a new stretch of the Paris Metro.
