New skatepark for Southbank Centre?


Rick Mather has been appointed to oversee a new skate park on the South Bank in London. No images or details yet – but an announcement:

“Drawing on ideas suggested by local skateboarders as well as on their own expertise, they identified that the prime use of this site would focus on street skateboarding as well as encompassing a range of urban arts activities including graffiti and BMXing. Like the existing skate space, the designs should not look like a conventional skatepark or skate plaza, and should also be flexible to allow for the possibility of events-based programming including skateboard events and dance performances, and for it to be used as an open public space for everyone.”

What do you think?



Or this?
