Pole Bole


Traditional playgrounds represent didacticism. By relying on rigid equipment that only serves a limited set of programmed purpose, play has become simplified and, in turn, the process of discovering and inventing things to play with is neglected, if not eliminated. The ambition of this project, therefore, is to redefine the playground as a modifiable, constantly evolving environment that breeds multiple forms, size and rules of play. The diversity in play is achieved not by the number of equipment but by our limitless capacity to create play whether it is an object, space or interaction itself. With a simple structural guide – a field of poles raised in different angles – Pole Bole offers various heights of openings, barriers and intersections on which play can be embroidered. Adjustable hooks in each pole aids flexibility and adaptability of play-making. Differentiated levels of surface extend opportunities for play-arrangement while intensifying visual phenomena and spatial interactions. Through this exploration, invention, construction and modification, users of all age, size and physical dexterity can participate in a communal authorship of the play space.

Station service restaurée


Une station de gaz des années 1950 a été rénovée en un immeuble résidentiel comprenant une gallerie d’art. Dans le quartier densément construit de Schöneberg, à Berlin, les écarts entre les bâtiments sont conservés ainsi que de grands pins et des cerisiers ornementaux. Devant la toiture de l’ancienne station à essence se trouve maintenant un canal rempli de nénuphar avec des jets d’eau et une haie de bambou puis des jacinthes, lys, digitales et ancolies parsèment le parterre de sable.
