Just to make it clear – I am not a skater. And I have no knowledge of the premises of skating at all! However, as a non-skater, I want to share this spot from my point of view.
Fælledparken Skatepark is an award winning street Mecca for skaters in Copenhagen. When approaching Fælledparken from Nørre Allé you’ll hear the sound of hundreds of tiny wheels’ friction against the smooth concrete. Soon you’ll see skaters of all ages move up and down voids of different forms and shapes. Architecturally, I think the park is quite fascinating. And as a bystander I can get completely absorbed by the continuity of shapes, edges and transitions. It’s like somebody took a giant ice cream scoop and carved out from a big gray concrete surface.
In 2012 the architectural firm and the entrepreneurs behind the project received a prestigious award for innovation in working with concrete. The park was carefully developed by professional skaters, and I guess of course it’s the user-friendly layout of Fælledparken Skatepark that attracts all these skaters, rather than the technical perfection of the concrete. But we can all have our different reasons to like this spot, right…
