51 weeks of urban jungle
Rhodorendrons of Haaga are in bloom for one week in mid-June. Thousands of Helsinkians fill Instagram and Facebook with pictures of those during the week. Nice wooden paths and fences surround the plants and the park overall looks very nice and well-maintained. Still I’m thinking: what kind of use there is for the park outside the blooming time?
Here I’m sitting on a rock which has been left in a convenient bench shape. In this post I want to draw attention to formations and shapes in our environment that can be used as places to chill and hang out etc. Although this particular place is artificially formed likely during railroad construction, it serves the same purpose.
Me enjoying jumping on a cushy sofa someone had brought next to a skate park built in a forest in Haaga. I am interested in cultural and communal diy structures in the urban but value nature as well. I believe playfulness is a way to creativity and value also the incomplete experiments and ‘interesting failures’
