The Real Night Rider

August 4, 2012

This glow in the dark skateboard park by Korean artist Koo Jeong-A in association with Brussels-based L’Escaut Architectures created at an island in the middle of France’s Vassivière Lake has to be one of the most awesome urban environments ever conceived. The luminosity comes from a special phosphorescent concrete, that should be used in just about every city centre, everywhere in the world from now on. But probably won’t.

The vast majority of us in the world will probably never have a chance to ride the luminous trip fantastic or even walk it – so if you’re a town planner or an architect or run a construction company take a leaf from Koo Jeong-A’s book and try lighting up the city at night without burning more fuel. Just for a change let’s really try going green 😀
