Project:

The downtown Skatepark is a lively public space featuring professional skate bowls and beginner tricks.  The park sits in the heart of Houston, within the Buffalo Bayou Parks and Recreation trails. VGS designed a 'loop' around the park for about 600 spectators including grass terraced seating, shaded areas, state of the art lighting and 170 ft of panels for urban street art, featuring local, national and international rotating art installations.  This project was developed alongside the Houston Parks Board, the skaters and the Jamail foundation as a collaborative effort to activate the park and promote this urban sport so loved by locals and visitors.  The result is a buzzing environment, used by the community and attracting skaters from across the board for sport, art and musical events.
