Journey of the Senses - Sensory landscape relieves mental health

Location: Bexley park, Cnr Stoney Creek Road and, Henderson Rd, Bexley NSW 2207, Australia. Size: 4.4 ha.Client: Bayside Council. Man’s relationship with nature has always been one of solidarity, and it has always been possible to know that nature is a valuable resource for health and to expect to make a connection with it. However, in recent years, with the acceleration of urbanization, population expansion and climate change, natural resources are gradually reduced. Meanwhile, in the special context of Covid-19, increasing social pressures and the unpredictability of the future have made the promotion of physical fitness become a hot topic that needs to be addressed urgently. Through the medium of perception, the project redesigns the area’s valuable green spaces and strengthening the link between man and nature, based on the site’s existing local culture, recreational nature and conditions, encouraging a new way to maximize green health rehabilitation. By focusing on the dialogue between people and green, reactivate the vitality of the site. It includes ‘introduction and co-existence’ of seasonal wetland, ‘self-recognition and sense of belonging’ of community and ‘care action’ for special population.
