Children's Healing Garden
Best Project of Public Space by Student
About the project
Due to today's urbanization, the distance created with nature and the decrease of human contact with it, physical and mental problems and diseases have been created for all age groups, especially children, and therefore healing gardens have become one of the needs of stressful life in today's society. These gardens provide a suitable platform for human interaction, especially for children, with the environment and the involvement of different senses and the promotion of physical and mental health. Outdoor play also improves the child's immune system, stimulates his imagination and creativity, and prepares him to enter the next stages of life by gaining experience, education and communication with nature, living beings and all kinds.
With the spread of COVID 19 and its spread our team has made plans in this field to prevent the spread and elimination of the disease chain along with the activity and presence of users in urban areas and the use of urban facilities with the least risk.
