On behalf of Unicef, our friends from the theatre collective "Bluespots Productions", together with two other partners in three cities in Germany, tried to awaken childhood memories by intervening simultaneously in public space.
Because they had the idea to build a ball pool for adults, but on the one hand a comparatively small budget and on the other hand the challenge that everything has to be set up and dismantled overnight, they asked endboss for help.
In order to solve the problem, we thought of a spectacularly simple architecture and implemented it together with Bluespots Productions on site: Two tilted hexagons form a diagonally stiffened shell for the ball pool by means of roof battens.
The construction is easy to assemble and dismantle and suitable for reuse.
+ Format: Temporary Architecture
A temporary architectural intervention is a good impulse to initiate long-term spatial processes and transformation. Our designs for such interventions through temporary buildings are site-specific, modular and spectacular. We plan in such a way that the implementation and structural production of these sites can take place directly with those who will subsequently use them and, if necessary, want to further develop them: Low-threshold in structural complexity with the highest demands on design and the potential to develop new spatial narratives.
+ Method: Co-Production
Even after the co-creation process, we do not see ourselves as a mere implementation agency, but see it as a core task to involve as many people as possible with different backgrounds and motivations in the implementation of our projects. In our drafts we therefore do not only work site-specifically, but also group-specifically.
