Wood Work is the Building Centre's online lunch talks series featuring international designers and their wood inspired projects, supported by the Timber Trade Federation and Wood for Good.
Seventh project of the series is London Selfridges' timber skateboarding park – The Bowl – presented by Sam Derrick, director at Brinkworth Design.
About The Bowl
Unconventionally positioned within the main retail space of the Selfridges menswear department in Central London,Brinkworth and The Mighty-Mighty designed the world’s first fully enclosed skate bowl in 2018.The sculptural, vessel-like installation pays homage to the original travelling skate park structures of the 1970’s, and is formed using a continuous 360-degree timber exoskeleton. The underside of the bowl remains exposed – celebrating itsengineering and construction – while above a cocoon of framework adds to structural integrity and keeps skaters safely contained.
