"SKATEPLATZA",BOLZANO CONCRETE SKATEPARK, study render of semi-definitive layout. I participated at first phase of the skatepark design, defining the main concept and layout of the structure, and advising the coordinator of the project, Philip Klammsteiner, on materials and technologies.
"SKATEPLATZA",BOLZANO CONCRETE SKATEPARK, final low-res render of first layout hypothesis. This was my final contribute to the skatepark design: the layout I choose was quite like the final one, even with some retouching. My advice was to abandon concrete for stainless steel covered in wood, because of safety and possibility to change the layout in the years, but finally it was choosen concrete. Another of the abandoned ideas was trees IN the park (because of safety issues...)

"SKATEPLATZA",BOLZANO CONCRETE SKATEPARK, final low-res render of first layout hypothesis. Detail of the big "stage-funbox": a structure whose aim was to be used as a multifunctional area: a big fun box (with a wallride) for tricks, and a stage for concerts and shows.
"SKATEPLATZA",BOLZANO CONCRETE SKATEPARK, final low-res render (made by others) of the final layout. This was the definitive idea, that was then built: it differs on some details but the general layout remained the one designed at the beginning. Unluckyly plants and trees where gone.

HALF-PIPE at SANTI ANGELI (TV, ITALY), measures of the structure. The half pipe was the first skate structure designed and built by me and my friends of "Etil". "Etil" was the skates, ramps and streetwear brand we founded in the late 90's. The halfpipe was entirely built in wood.

SKATEPARK at JESOLO "PLAYVILLAGE" (TV, ITALY), the project. The skatepark was then built by me and my friends of "Etil" (our skates, ramps and streetwear brand in the 90's). The skatepark was entirely built in iron and wood: iron profiles for the supporting structures and plywood for the planes.
SAKTEPARK PROJECT for 55DSL (DIESEL brand). In the late 90's DIESEL asked to me and my friends at "ETIL" to layout a concept of a skatepark based on the logo of one of their brands, "55DSL". This was the result, together with a video. Static renders and video at that time where made by myself with 3DstudioMAX 4.
