KOO JEONG A | OTRO

APRIL 2008 – JULY 2012
VASSIVIÈRE ISLAND, FRANCE

“If you are curious, you expand your ideas into different areas. You meet writers, architects, and designers. You are forced to learn how to speak to young skaters." Koo Jeong A
OTRO is the first in a series of fully functioning glow-in-the-dark skateparks created by Koo Jeong A. The 2,300-square-foot (212-square-meters) concrete sculpture, produced in collaboration with Belgian architectural firm L’escaut, is composed of a set of bowls connected by a tunnel and a cradle. A man-made dreamscape amid the natural surroundings, the artwork is intended to be used, offering an extraordinary sensorial experience to skaters and spectators alike.
