Entry for EASA006, Budapest
The task was to transform a neglected courtyard, with an abandoned tennis court, into a playground for grown-ups.
One important thing is that the structure/play-thing is going to last and never become boring.
Our proposal is based on the human imagination, and when that is depleted, so is our solution. So it will probably last for a while.
We kept the tennis court structure and added some poles, painted it red, attached some PVC-sheeting and turned the whole courtyard into a Prop yard.
A prop yard is a new invention that functions as a creative place where you can create new environments with the help of props.
A prop is a thing that is used in movies or in the theatre to enhance the experience/feeling that the movie/play would like to pass on to you.
Fake palm trees, inflatable giant dinosaurs, fake snow, an old jukebox, and so on.
Lighting fixtures and the possibility to plug in electrical devices makes the prop yard more equipped for a greater variety of settings.
We predicted that this phenomenon will be spread to rest of the world, and in many areas, replace the function the park has today.
An interactive, always changing, dynamic park, where you can socialize and create things in contrast to your unsatisfying (?) job.
