Glow In The Dark Skatepark

koo jeong A has collaborated with belgian firm l'escaut architectures to design a concrete sculpture which features a composition of different bowls 
connected by one tunnel and a cradle. located on vassivière island in france, 'otro' stands as a fully functioning skatepark, but this one's a little bit different - it's glow-in-the-dark eliminating the complications of an evening skate session. drawn to the surrounding mysterious wooded french landscape, the korean artist wanted to create a dreamscape amidst the natural surroundings. the artwork is something that is meant to live and be used, providing a sensorial experience to skaters and spectators alike.
