Rainbow Ropes

Entry to 1x20 competition and exhibition

The american city has become littered with vacant lots. These spaces leave a  emptiness, and become a place that people try to avoid. Rainbow Ropes, attempts to reactivate these types of spaces by building an infrastructure for play. Rainbow Ropes becomes a playground for children and adults alike, he conic shapes and tunnel like forms are inviting for people to climb inside. The web like structure is made of rope woven between structural steel frameworks. This rope can be soft and comfortable to climb, sit, and lounge on.  Open to the fresh air, the density of the rope filters light to shade inhabitants as they lounge inside. Rainbow Ropes intends to reactivate  dead spaces in the city and create place where everyone can come together and feel young again.
