The Square Park
Redesign the Energy Park in Rome for Parkour Practice
The mission was to design a park to practice the discipline of parkour. Inside the park there had to be a training area with specific tools and two pavilions for services. Parkour is a discipline born in metropolitan France at the end of the 80 whose aim is to overcome any type of obstacle in a path, looking from time to time to adapt your body to the environment; the real goal is therefore to get maximum knowledge of your body, know your limits and, through hard training (mental and physical), overcome them. The term “parkour” comes from the French parcour and literally means “path”. Its practitioners are called so traceurs (male) and traceuses (female).
