The Unusual Football Field Project
"If we give importance to some useless space, in every area of our life, therw will not be such word as 'useless'".
"A Thai real estate developer has built four misshapen pitches in Khlong Toei, an extremely densely-populated area of the capital where the proliferation of high and low-rise apartments have left little space for parks or play areas. (...) The concept of the project, its creators said, was to transform irregularly-shaped areas into practical football fields that still allow fair play. Each pitch is painted brick-red and with markings in grey."
“This unusual football field has proven that designing outside boundaries can help foster creativity used to develop these useful spaces.” (The Guardian)
"Firm believers in the notion that "Space can change a life", the AP Thailand and CJ Worx team saw that this unused space had immense value and understood that a project that successfully utilised it would serve to strengthen the community and enhance relationships amongst those living within it. It was from this conviction that the Unusual Football Field project was born." (Design Indaba)
