Architects Studio Dror based in Istanbul, Turkey has created a new forest park concept, called “Parkorman”.

“The park comprises five main zones, each with its own distinct qualities. The Loop features swings and hammocks suspended above the forest floor, while giant ball pits, inspired by Turkish spice markets, dominate The Pool.

A maze-like trail surrounded by sculptures, called The Grove, aims to encourage exploration, while a cube-shaped Fountain of Clarity envelops visitors in water,” reports Inhabitat.
