2022 Cat A - Rain Park

The Rain Park was designed in the place of an ecological wasteland in Cracow. In spite of being surrounded by highly urbanized quarters, the area has varied topography, hydrography and is biologically diverse, which even more emphasizes the natural uniqueness of the place and its natural value.
The main goal of the project was to design the urban park space, which will be the resultant of the recreation area for local visitors and nature mainstay, with wild enclaves that will preserve self-sustainable microsystems. It was important to use the hydrological potential of the site and apply many solutions that would support local retention and turn the area into a “sponge” - a coherent retention system.
A series of urban and landscape analysis were carried out, which allowed the recognition of the conditions affecting the site and matching appropriate design tools.
