Reclaiming The Street


The international architectural competition and publication ‘Reclaiming the Street’ are part of ‘Endless City’, a long-term project of Showroom MAMA in which the relationship between skateboard culture, public space and (visual) art is being investigated. The creativity with which the skaters 'use' the city and how they question (architectural) rules, offer new perspectives on the design and use of public space by different groups of users. The call for ‘Reclaiming the Street’ was the design of an object or adaptation of urban space to be used by skateboarders and the general public, encouraging multiple uses. With a text by architectural historian Ian Borden and a chapter from Jocko Weyland’s ‘The Answer is Never’.
