Sandweiler – October 2012



 

In 2009 Skatepark.lu helped advocate and design a new Skatepark for the Sandweiler commune, in Luxembourg.

Skatepark.lu was only responsible for delivering the design and assisting in the pre-project phase, which up till then looked promising…

We created this group to give some insight to what went wrong when the build started and what happens when « architects » take decisions without consulting with Skaters and when skaters are not taken seriously by the authorities.
There are a number of pictures showing the as-build version and the actual design, as it should be.

Various factors came into play why this project did not turn out as it was intended: Deadline? Knowhow? Budget? Lack of expertise? …
We will never know… one thing is for sure the result speaks for itself.
