Alahhya Albrrea park, located in the southern outskirts of Tripoli, concentrates an heteregeneous set of programs: admistrative and service buildings, sport areas, outdoor leisure facilities, wide green surfaces and a mini zoo.
The circulation system is based on two main rings. The area is innervated by a net of paths, which, departing from the rings, intersecate to allow the exploration. Three main gates allow the public to enter the area, which is surrounded by a continous fence.
The design of the ground, responding to water shortage, is limited
to restricted areas. Small fields of fragrant flowers and colourful plants
and trees punctuate a continuous carpet of sparse grass and bushes. A dense forest provides some shade for animals and visitors in the mini zoo.
A drop-by-drop pervasive irrigation system covers the whole surface of the area. The water ponds and fountains, in addition to provide aesthetic pleasure and refreshment, represent the core of the system.
A myriad of small sitting areas and service facilities creates a vibrant constellation with the mini zoo pavillions and the main public buildings.
