OB1 LIVE 17: Urban Sports Day

January 2014

Background

As part of a larger project to design contemporary recreational facilities for Temple Cowley, Oxford, year one students at Oxford Brookes School of Architecture coordinated an Urban Sports Day event for the area.

Finding underused public spaces in the Temple Cowley area and using found materials, students transformed the place by making boundaries / edges / lines / surfaces / barriers / openings to define a playing space and making their own balls, bats and wheels. After inventing and refining a new game, passers-by were invited to join in and the event was filmed to record the temporary transformation of the space.
