A paper city from child's mind.
What if children could design their own city? What would it look like, what would they be able to do?
This was the question we asked ourselves in order to imagine a different city: one designed with simple shapes, but with a fun and dynamic flow.
In this ideal city for children you’ll find several places for fun, like an amusing park, a beach, a camp in the woods, but also several essential areas, such as a farm with cows and sheep where vegetables grow big. The school and library where information is amusing and fun. A clean sea where the animal life is preserved. The children's fears are also represented with a monster in the sub ground sneaking through a window (not that monstrous after all!). And high above, their dreams and fantasies showing up has a mythical creature flying around.
This installation was part of LU.CA exhibition, where several guests reflected on the importance of cities to children. We accepted their challenge and created this paper city, that you can lose yourself discovering all its details.
