Hallucinogenic Parks tilts modern functionalist planing into an urban planing poetry. We considered the possibility of parks with homegrown hallucinogenic substances in stead of importing them from war torn geographies. Apart from inserting another logic into the urban fabric it also adds an ecological perspective in terms of eliminating  the need for  transportation over long distances. A local study was made for the area of Greenland in Oslo.
