German term or phrase: GE-EN, Raumgestaltung
Hi,
can anyone help me with this sentence, please?!

- In dieses "Bühnenbild" setzen die Akteure weitere geometrische, künstliche und künstlerische Flächen, die eine weitere und tiefe Raumgestaltung der Rasenfläche bewirken und die Arkadenmauer akzentuieren. -

I am having trouble with the whole sentence. Also, I really wonder what the appropriate term for "Raumgestaltung" in English is. This sentence, and the light artist, is talking about the open space in a park, a public place, where he wants to enhance the natural "stage set" with forms and specially with light art.
So, I believe that interior design is not appropriate at all.
Any help appreciated.
Thank you, very much!!

Explanation:
"Into this stage set the actors insert further geometric, artificial, and artistic surfaces, which lead to a more extensive and deeper definition of the spatial properties of the lawn and accentuate the arcade wall."

Raumgestaltung = design or definition of spatial properties

landscaping


Explanation:
this is the outdoor version of interior design. You might also want to see if "apparent landscaping" works for you, as it implies that this is a set and not necessarily a permanent change to the park.

spatial arrangement/design/creation


Explanation:
spatial arrangement/design/creation

The actors place/set/put/move more geometric, artificial, and artistic surfaces in this/the stage set/scene/scenery. These produce a farther and deep(er) spatial arrangement/design/creation and accent/emphasize the arcade walls.
