It was the 29th of April 2014, at the Centre of Contemporary Culture of Barcelona. In the Main Hall, there was the traveling exhibit “Shared Cities“. It displayed entries and the results of the European Prize for Urban Public Space 2014. Within the rows of entries on the side, I discovered that a street in Paris was transformed into a skatepark by the request of some local college students (2007) living in the 2nd.
A few days after seeing the exhibit I was in Paris. The street park was active with kids and adults, which also caught the attention of the passers-by.
