After presenting our idea to the 5th year mentors and receiving the feedback, we came out with a design and made a sketch up model of it. After the second review, we made small changes to the design, according to the suggestions we received (adding trees to exaggerate the vertical aspects of the park, voids to bring light into the dark car park space below, and correctly managing water drainage).
