On the island of Vassiviere, France, lies a skater’s paradise.
Two thousand square feet of surface area of smooth concrete perfect for awesome skateboarding stunts. The best part? It glows in the dark.
Called ‘Otro’, this skatepark was conceptualized and designed by Koo Jeong Ah, a Korean artist who wanted to plant a surprise dreamscape in the middle of the European wilderness. In cooperation with the Belgian firm L’Escaut Architectures and skate collectives Brusk and Barricade, Koo built this otherworldly skatepark using phosphorescent concrete. The project was finished in 2012.
This illusory skatepark is open to all skaters at any time of the day (or night).
