Edinburgh-based landscape architects Gross.Max. has unveiled a dramatic scheme to rejuvenate the Mabley Green and Red Path area of east London's Hackney Wick. Faced with the demands of community groups who wanted both well-maintained sports fields and wildlife habitats, the practice has developed a semi-circular earth embankment. Football pitches are on the inside, leaving community gardens and wetland areas on the other side. It is also hoped that the grassed embankment, containing underground LED lights to mark a running track, will serve as an 'amphitheatre' for spectators.
