Landscape architect Gross Max

  • Comment

Landscape architect Gross Max, with artist Adam Barker-Mill, has won against strong competition with a 'sound, light and water' scheme in the competition to develop Hackney Town Hall Square in East London. The team beat Future Systems; Hawkins Brown with local group Hackney Artists; and 6a with Tomato, Michael Hadi Associates and Boyden and Co for the job of creating a new urban space at the heart of the area's £50 million development of a cultural quarter. The winner intends to make the square an 'outdoor foyer' and a 'striking and magic carpet' for the surrounding buildings. It aims to transform raised plant beds into two large mirror ponds featuring computer-controlled underwater lights, paving made of cast-iron plates and a large grid of quarried-limestone slabs.
