NEWS IN PICTURES

Thomas Heatherwick has revealed these exclusive pictures of plans to overhaul a run-down playground in the Wan Chai area in the heart of Hong Kong. Backed by the British Council, the scheme has been developed with regeneration specialist Fred Mason and includes proposals for sunken football pitches, a new 400m-long stone sculpture, and floating basketball courts.

The courts, which will be raised 8m off the ground, will boast a translucent glass and resin deck and a transparent mesh screen.

If funding is secured, the proposals will create an additional 1,700m 2 of space for the users of the Southorn Playground.
