OVERVIEW

A moving skate park reimagining what the future could look like beyond permanent concrete structures.


Girl Skateboards has always a household name, pushing to be more inclusive while paying homage to its lush history. This partnership aims to address enduring stereotypes surrounding skating and how to better integrate parks as a public good through the vision of skate parks as a gathering space or like a fountain in the middle of the mall.











Skating as a gathering space

1. Hi-Res Skate Parts & Photos
  • Cameras installed at each obstacle around the park at the hard-to-capture angles
  • Digital queue line is enforced that signal to the cameras
  • Communal-oriented stations to retrieve free photos and footage

2. No board? No Problem.

  • Girl will provide a wide selection of their skateboards to help you learn and test
  • Opening this to a larger target audience within the community










Adaptation Over Time

3-weeks per city  

  • Build is made to be rearranged and split apart, taking on different obstacles (i.e. half of the head is vertically pushed against the building wall to form a skateable bridge, etc). 
  • Chalk outline left behind upon moving to a new city (map below not to scale)





Site Selection Considerations

  • Compatibility with existing use of land
  • City code for noise, lighting
  • Proximity to public transport
  • Clear, passive observation by parents, EMS, police, and public
