MONOLITHIC SKATEPARKB-ILD ARCHITECTEN

ASIDE FROM RESPONDING TO THE SPECIFIC CHALLENGES DESIRED BY THE SKATERS, IT WAS THE AMBITION TO CREATE AN ADDED VALUE ON A BIGGER SCALE, INTENDED FOR A DIVERS GROUP OF USERS. THE OPEN CHARACTER OF THE SKATE PARK WITH THE ADDITION OF A PUBLIC SQUARE ALLOWS IT TO BECOME AN INTEGRAL PART OF ITS WIDER SURROUNDINGS. THE UNAMBIGUOUS AND ARCHITECTURAL CONCEPTION ASPIRES TO LEAVE A LASTING IMPRESSION ON ITS USERS AND PASSERS-BY.

THE IMPLANTATION AND DESIGN OF THE PARK IS DEVISED AS A SCULPTURE IN ITS ENVIRONMENT. A CONCRETE SQUARE IS FOLDED INTO A PROVOKING PLAYGROUND INCLUDING ALL THE ELEMENTS NECESSARY FOR A CHALLENGING AND INSPIRING SKATE PARK. THE CONCRETE PLANE IS SLIGHTLY LIFTED TO STRENGTHEN ITS SCULPTURAL QUALITIES AND ENHANCE ITS VISIBILITY. THE CONCRETE SCULPTURE BECOMES TANGIBLE WHILE THE TRIBUNE AND STEEL BENCHES EMPHASIZE ITS PUBLIC CHARACTER.

FUNCTIONING AS A PUBLIC SQUARE, WHICH YOU PASS BY BEFORE ENTERING THE OTHER BUILDINGS, IT ALSO OFFERS AN OPPORTUNITY TO SIT AND SPEND TIME.
