Design & Build: Rooftop Skatepark

...
We built recycled moveable skate ramps,
made from the same ramps we used for the
King of Spring event at Open Road Park.

The rooftop is shaped like an E

The E runs north/south a whole city block. At first we thought we'd use the
center part of the E (above left). This location was
rejected in talks with Scott, the principal (above right).
There would be too much noise in offfice rooms
used after school under this section of the roof


This section of the roof, to the north,
is better. Enough room to skate,
no offices below. So we moved in the
skate ramps, in pieces, and rebuilt them
with New Design student volunteers.
