Recycled Urban Design
Miryam Park in Givatayim is one park benefiting from Urban Fabric's recycling plan. Reporter Ilan Lior talked to architects Havi Livne and Heli Ellul Tselniker:
"We were approached by the Givatayim municipality, which told us there was a donor who wanted to build a park focused on recycling. He envisioned all the things we already have in our daily lives - bottle recycling, paper products and so on. But we felt the idea needed to be moved up a notch."
They wanted recycling to be "a strategy to run the city by. The materials we use haven't left the city and if they do, they come back.""
