The project is inspired in sports and was developed for the International Kids festival Organized by Chong Bang Group every year.
 
This public space design aims to attract pedestrian and passersby through its exciting colorful landscape and topography. It’s morphology allows the user to play, to jump, to climb and many more things.  On the other hand, the project counts with seating features and a red “object plaza” with an umbrella and a lounge area for the pedestrian to take a break from the extreme summer heat.

Grounded Object

Product definition

It is an inhabitable architectural object inserted on top of an existing urban environment, but alienated from its surroundings.
 
This architectural object intervenes in the space by touching the ground and acting as an accessible and multifunctional platform, allowing people to stand on top of it and interact directly.
 
The main objective of this conceptual prototype is to trigger a massive public interest to the place, encouraging the rise of high public affluence, becoming a remarkable virtual landmark that attracts customers and cultivates important human dynamics and commercial activity.
