IOTA’s fiberglass cube planters were recently specified for King George Square, a historical landmark in Brisbane, to help add some greenery. The square is located between Adelaide St. and Ann St., next to Brisbane City Hall.
The square was last redeveloped in 2009. It became controversial as the designer removed the grass which made the concrete too hot and the summer heat intolerable. Despite calls to bring back the grass, the designer stood his ground that he would not change anything on the design.
Though the grass was removed, King George Square had a lot of large trees on its sides in front of City Hall. And now with the addition of the fiberglass planters from IOTA, designers were able to add a bit more greenery to the roadside. These planters also served as a barrier separating the square from the road and sidewalk.
People who pass by the area are pleased with the addition of the planters saying that the area became livelier and more pleasing to the eye.
