Rapid Palace

Visiondivision was assigned for the commision to re-do a school yard outside Gothenburg.
The work is now under progress

The commission: To transform a quite boring schoolyard into a more playful one. As the school already has a budget for asphalt maintenance we decided to use this as our main tool for the improvement of the yard.

April: A pattern combined from plans of palaces from all over the world is created by tearing away parts of the existing asphalt. The price for placing new asphalt or tearing away old one is similar. Fast growing Salix are planted in the new voids.

August: As the kids starts school again they will have a palace made from walls of Salix that already has reached half their length of four meters.

25 years later: It is now wise to harvest the Salix and ship it as eco fuel to
the nearby heating plant or can become furniture for the new castle that will rise for the next generation of kids.
