Phil Gosch from SaphireStudio designed a local skatepark with Blender and used an annotated Sketchfab model to share the designs with the rest of the team. With help from Red Bull, this park is now real!
So the last two weeks I was very busy with…building a concrete skatepark! We were offered the opportuity to build our own Do-It-Yourself (DIY) skatespot right under a big, abandoned silo which is mainly used as canvas for street artists nowadays. While we were busy working under it, some amazing artists painted the walls of it high above our heads!
Two weeks for something this big, built out of concrete was a tight timeframe for sure. But the guys allowing us to use their property for our skatepark were hosting a big streetart festival on the 18. of July and they wanted a skate-contest to take place at this event too! Of course we tried our best to meet that deadline, which wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Sketchfab at our planning phase.
