In most cities, skateboarders — street skaters in particular — often find themselves in direct conflict with local councils. Authorities, rightly or wrongly, are infamous for adding spikes and removing tempting rails in the name of safety. Even when cities are blessed with skate parks that exist as valued parts of the local landscape, they can still find themselves in danger of closure — one example is London’s Southbank skatepark. But Rotterdam’s Jira Jira Collective may have found a solution, in the form of their modular skatepark. The innovative design project is a collection of nine mobile structures that can be added to existing objects in the urban landscape to create temporary obstacles.
