URBANisM - BOATKILL

MECHELEN (BE)

LAUREATE OF THE CONTEST ORGANIZED BY DESIGN FLANDERS & CITY MECHELEN

ASSIGNMENT: An installation that redefines the parking space within the urban scenery.

DESIGN

& REALIZATION:

Cities emerged and lived at waterway intersections. A mythical sailing showpiece, the prah, historically expelled by the car, is safely sunk in a parking lot. Instead of floating on the water, the prah packs the water poetically.

"Boatkill", a fusion of prah and parking lot, turns out to wrap itself like a decorated car with mirror foil. Absent and prominent at the same time.

A cultural gem is brought back into the daylight and expels the ‘KING CAR’.

MEDIUM : Photo of realization, exposed in Mechelen
