A film exploring freerunning (parkour) and architecture
“These parkour wonders have a completely different outlook on architecture and use buildings as their playgrounds rather than as shelter or work space.”
It show the development the world’s largest dedicated Parkour park in Denmark.
I’ve never even heard of such a thing.
It had been a topic I first talked about in NYC with the only person I knew who actually even knows how to do this crazy sport. I was fascinated by the idea of what “parkour-designed” place might look like in urban form. Though interesting he had said that it shouldn’t be “designed” as it would take out the fun challenge and core elements of making use of existing urban spaces.
