Rashed Al-Zyoud Square is one of the major squares at King Abdullah Bin AbdulAziz city in Zarqa. This competition was an interesting opportunity for us to touch on the artistic value and ecological potential of public squares in Jordan beside the normally adopted purely functional approach.The concept behind the proposed intervention stems from the idea that martyrs have sacrificed their lives so that our children can live in peace. The design proposes transforming the martyr’s square into a peaceful sanctuary for children -a place where they would enjoy themselves, run and play freely without fear or restrictions. This playground is a circular bike track that frames an indigenous thick forest. The highest point of the track meets a big flagpole that flies the Jordanian flag amidst native trees and shrubs. The thick vegetation acts as a mini urban forest that is surrounded and animated by children’s circular movement around it.
