Design competition: Reclaiming the Street
Deadline: May 31, 2010
As part of its multimedia project ‘Endless City’, MAMA is launching an open-submission competition: ‘Reclaiming the Street’. ‘Reclaiming the Street’ takes as a starting point skateboard culture as an example of ‘homo ludens’ for building bridges between those who make use of the public space.
‘Reclaiming the Street’ is an open-submission competition for established and emerging artists, architects, skateboarders and those who have an interest in skateboard culture. We are looking for unpublished and unrealised concepts for skate objects, skateboard furniture, and plug-ins. But also, a (re)organisation of an urban public space, which creates a place to be used by a variety of people, including skateboarders.
