Green Square, Sydney

The open building structure, housing OMA's innovative aquatic center, rises from the ground as a continuity of SLA’s landscape. Here you will find a diverse city park with clusters of experiences generated across the whole site. By restoring local wetland typologies and incorporate sport facilities in these, the landscape e.g. gets the capacity to collect rain fall in the winter that can be used for irrigation in the summer. The wetland also creates habitat for native birds and over the year the flora and fauna will offer different expressions and experiences for both sports enthusiasts and the passing pedestrian.
