BOULEVARD
 


 

Project by ON/OFF & ANDREW BATEMAN
Commissioned by FESTIVAL KANAL
Film, photos, & text by ANDREW BATEMAN

 

In September 2014 ON/OFF introduced BOULEvard to the streets of Brussels as part of Festival KanalThe design of the BOULEvard ball used scientific theories of tension and integrity to create a large 4m tall structure. The goal of the project was to intervene in our everyday interactions with the city and encourage the city's residents to reconsider the idea of play. The challenge was to create a structure tough enough to navigate the obstacles of a city, and yet light enough to be spontaneous and playful. In the end, the project proved successful as residents of Brussels came out in droves to inspect and then play with the BOULEvard Tensegrity Ball.
