And now for something completely urban

A bit more downtown, and is the skateboard bit of the CONS project LND. The design was done as a collaboration with Jerome Campbell, one of the brand ambassadors of Cons. And the idea was to create a street that is a collection of sought after skate spots, tweaked to become better to skate. We then drew up all the objects and master plan to make sure it all worked together for it to be built in the UK.

The build was done by a group of talented folk from The Scenery Shop, based out in Sussex. All of the objects were built offsite, then with an intense three day onsite build. It was a pleasure working with all the crew: Alex Peters, Alex Avantis, Alan Hayes, Rob Smith, Lars Lauritzen, Harriet Lumby, Eddy Llewellyn, Elliot Dawes, Jos Carroll, Tom Roy Sue Puckett, Natalie red Perkins, Candy Tomlinson, Tim and captain Si Carroll, the end result was hyper real, and a blur between reality and fiction.

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.

First HBSS public workshop

Together with Iain Borden, we have been involved with creating the ideology behind a new city space that is part of the Southbank Centre, on the the river thames in London. Below is a video from the 1st public consultation meeting that took place last week. This really explains the brief and shows how the appointed architect SNE Architects, founded by skater Søren Nordal Enevoldse responded to it.
