THE CITY OPENS PLAINE DE PLAINPALAIS
SKATE PARK, GENEVA 2012 A skate park is a condensation of structures
used in urban sports, such as skateboarding, roller-skating and BMX, where we can find three major categories of structures: urban elements, such as ledges, walls or rails, bowls, which are a reinterpretation
of an empty swimming pool, and slanted plane structures,
also called a ditch, similar to retention reservoirs,
which are also used by skaters. People know little about these sports
and they tend to forejudge, and I believe that this will enhance
the visibility of such sports. The skate park has several strengths. The first one is its location
at the very heart of the city, and this is a good thing because
it’s an urban development project, its size, because it is a convenient park
in terms of surface, and its multi-purpose use
in three sports, including the interactions
between bowl, street parts and the ditch behind us. They have to protect themselves,
because falls are quite frequent. They learn as they fall, and those who reach this level
become the best. The city encourages them
to wear protection, such as elbow pads, knee pads,
and even wrist guards. They thought of everybody,
not just the beginners. Everybody can make progress,
it’s really cool. The skate park is better now.
