Athletics Exploratorium

The Athletics Exploratorium by Keingart Architects is the epitome of creative invitations to play.  What makes this project really work is that it takes a traditional track & field, which comes complete with its own expectations of movement and behavior, and it juxtaposes it with the unexpected.  People are drawn off the track and into these alternative uses, and before they know it, they are using their body in ways they haven't before.


How can you twist up something that already involves movement in order to broaden someones perspective? How can you change a soccer field? Or a baseball field? Or even tennis courts?  What are things we can do to blacktops & other surfaces?
