There is this newly constructed artificial landscape grass called Cloverleaf along Abu Bakr Street, where the old airport road snakes, here in Riyadh. I get to pass by this place every month for an obligatory appointment at Al Taj International School. I have never seen a road with such an ornate tracery so I always admire the kind of (work of) art it displays.
Cloverleaf was designed by landscape architect Eduard Gevers from Bödeker Partners. It is covered by a checkerboard pattern of artificial grass with an aero plane flight path (sculptural element) and circular boundary wall. There are more than 160.000m2 artificial grass rolled out on the Cloverleaf. The credit for the realization of this spot goes to Happy Feet Sports Systems in accordance with Arriyadh Development Authority’s recommendation.
