skate park project in association with the life centre

For my external design project I have been researching infomation on the Life Centre that is being built in Central Park Plymouth. The skate park which is in  the area now is going to be demolished and the area rebuilt on. At the moment this is the main park that skaters and bmx riders use the most. In my project I have been commissioned to design, using glass, a way that the concrete from the skate parks bowl can be recycled into 150 small awards and two large that will be given to the people that use the park. Before the park is torn down the bowl will be covered by an illustration by James Jarvis, a Londoner. This will be then carefully dismanteld (hopefully) so that it can then be combined with hot glass to create the awards.
