Waste. Move. Play

When Event Start

An intervention in Amsterdam Noord to activate parking spaces in a way to encourage passersby to get engage in activities throughout the day. 3 carparking spaces next to each other, connected by proximity and concept:

Title: Waste. Move. Play.


Our main approach will be scouting for waste in the city streets of Amsterdam. Rather than buying new, we aim to collect and reuse materials that people throw away on the streets and thus give them a new life. The 'waste' could be anything from residue from construction sites/ used furniture/ fabrics and textiles/ even bikes.


These materials will be adapted and transformed into a multi-functional interactive play structure, urging people to interact with what would otherwise have stayed as just the consequences of society. We would connect the materials using straps, clamps, bolts/ creating movable components by the addition of wheels/ adding interactive elements with textile.


The result will be an installation that encourages locals and bypassers to engage in physical activities. A multifaceted design that transforms a static parking spot into a space for climbing, resting, sitting, squatting, playing.
