Together with Leipzig's young generation, a play space workshop took place in and for Leipzig's city centre. After a tour of the city centre, play facilities were painted, kneaded and crafted for the initial project in Reichsstraße - and these results were presented to three teams of planners and artists, who translated them into feasible designs. Of these, the work of the Hallens-based artist Jan Viecenz was the most popular; GFSL was entrusted with the landscape architectural implementation of the artistic design for a labyrinth. The formation of the labyrinth's pathways was achieved by "cutting" pathways into the existing raised beds. A spatial effect is achieved through the combination of angular support elements and hedge plantings.
