Old Fourth Ward Skatepark – Objective (FBED)

Old Fourth Ward Skatepark, home to skaters and yoga practitioners alike. Cement skatepark accompanied by large grass field are the two major components that make up this landmark.

Through out the park, there is a repetition of colors grey and green. Grey and green, green and gray, these two colors work together to mend natural and man made elements to create one landscape.

 

GREY. Grey is observed mainly in man made features. Trash cans, cement skate park, covered areas.

The grass isn’t always greener on the other side, but on the other side of the skate park, there’s plenty of green grass.
