business park. Landscaped area in which are built offices, buildings for light industry, and the like, served by roads, and where development is controlled by a master-plan. A good example is Stockley Park, Heathrow, Hillingdon, London, developed to a master-plan by Arup Associates, and containing buildings by Arup, Foster, Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill, and others. Other business parks include the Cambridge Science Park (1970s), and Aztec West, near Bristol (1980s). Large business parks have been laid out with attractive landscaping elsewhere, notably in the USA and France.
