From the sky above, the bird’s eye view of Citizen Square in Shenzhen, China shows two huge red monster footprints. At ground level, the monster footprints make for a unique play space.
Designed by MAD Architects, the Monster’s Footprint attempts to create a ‘surreal reality’ in a public space. Made from EPDM (that soft-fall coloured rubber seen in lots of playgrounds), the footprint rises and falls in soft curves.
I really like the fact that this is a ‘playground’ without equipment and that it is essentially a ground level or sunken space leaving lots of possibilities for big imaginations.
