Skatable architecture

Together with Iain Borden we have been involved with the writing of the ideology behind a new architectural skateboard-able space that could be built on the Southbank, in London. Check out the press release here here.

We chose three architects, which the Southbank then commissioned, below are some of the design ideas that came back. Next stage is to take the design further with one of the architects who will work with us and some of the future users of the space to finalise a design to build.
