In­clud­ing pro­pos­als for a new eco park in Oman, a new spring gar­den show and award­win­ning gar­dens for a chil­dren’s hos­pi­tal

The col­lab­o­ra­tive trio of Grimshaw Ar­chi­tects, Arup En­gi­neer­ing and Ha­ley Sharpe De­sign has re­vealed its master­plan for the Oman Botanic Gar­den, an eco park in the foothills of the Al Ha­jar moun­tains in north­east­ern Oman. The gar­den, cov­er­ing 420 hectares, will be the largest of its kind in the Ara­bian Penin­sula and will cel­e­brate and con­serve the coun­try’s botanic diver­sity by re-cre­at­ing its eight prin­ci­pal habi­tats, the most sen­si­tive en­closed in two biomes. The gar­den will also in­clude a vis­i­tor cen­tre, and ed­u­ca­tion and re­search fa­cil­i­ties.
