Garden 73 (Hamburg, Germany)
Soccer in a new environment. Water on the soccer lawn can create unintentional comic shots. In Garden 73 these conflicts become the central issues of the program.
The playing field is made of a simple concrete basin. The floor is covered with an elastic coating, which is roughened for friction.
In 1933, the architect R. Buckminster Fuller created the Dymaxion World Map, a cartographic projection which can be unfolded into a two dimensional map. In 1954, at Lake Maggiore, the first standardized mini-golf course was opened, designed by the landscape architect, P. Bongni. The Dymaxion golf in the garden 73 is a remix: the Unfolded Dymaxion World is the support field for the mini golf game. Continents and countries are successively played and conquered. The folded triangles of the world map consist of reinforced, lightweight concrete stilts, hovering over the lawn area.
