Silk Tree Park is the first public domain area in Tehran designed in accordance with spatial guidelines for deaf and HOH individuals.
The park is part of a larger initiative on behalf of the municipality to create more public spaces that are inclusive for all physical abilities. The design was premised around how responding to special needs can enrich our urban environments, and how the design of natural and built environments can foster playful interaction and empathy between people from all walks of life.
This project has been longlisted in the landscape project category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
