From the architect: Inspired by the triangulation of crystals’ structures, the project is shaped as a huge hexagonal structure from which different fun features are hanging down, creating a suspended public space.

This is a particular design approach that has been researched and tested for a while in our office, and has been finally implemented in an outdoor public space. A hanging public space in which all the functions are provided from above, experimenting with the feeling of gravity added to daily public features.

Each of the 6 equilateral triangles is equipped with a different hanging function designed to encourage and foster social interactions among users, such as hanging ball-swings, hammock nets, a hanging picnic, a pipe forest and a hanging lounge.

The hexagon arises from the graphics on the floor, combining two of the typical typologies researched in the office: Painted Scapes & Grounded Objects. It is intentionally designed that way in order to provide a more immersive experience, which starts from its surroundings when approaching the object. The Painted Scape on the floor makes it also more eye-catching not only to passersby, but to residents and workers that from the surrounding towers can have a top visual of the graphics.

The resulting installation is a very stimulating & instagrammable space for having fun, interacting with others, resting, playing and whiling away for some time in an open area.
