Hungerford Bridge Space

For the last 8 months we have been working together with the professor Iain Borden and then the appointed architect Soren Nordal Enevoldsen to realise a new space at The Southbank centre, on the river Thames in London. This public space has been designed in the sprit of the current skatable location, but has been tweaked to be really great for skateboarding.

This space will be made from high quality materials consisting of mostly granite slabs, and bricks, it has been legally guarantee for this use for 125 years, and the design allows for change, adaption and re-appropriation.

Many thanks for the input from all the skaters, bmxers and artist who came to the public meetings, and the others involved in the focus group meetings. We all hope that this design will help preserve the integrity of the cultures involved for the foreseeable future.
