The project is shaped as a huge self-standing hexagonal structure from which different fun features are hanging down creating a suspended public space.

The Suspended Object hangs above the area to intervene, defining the space and providing with different types of functions from above.
It is an intervention in which the architectural object intervenes in the space without touching it, yet interacts with the space from above. The interaction happens in the interface between the “ceiling” that the hanging object provides and the spaces bellow, where the users stand.
The hanging object aims to promote an alternative kind of public space interaction with a more artistic approach, in which the interface is uncommonly produced from above. This enhances the outdoor experience and triggering new social dynamics that convert the site into a highly recognizable place.
