zuk club paints lugano skatepark as a working sundial.
A 1000 square meter pool renovated as a skate park in lugano, Switzerland has been painted with vibrant colours and complex patterns by Moscow-based art group zuk club. a spectrum of hues is tagged onto the interior of the bowl, canvassing the skate surface in geometric and gradient designs. drawn onto one end of the pool, a rainbow of colours is layered onto the concrete — the specific arrangement and its relationship to the environment around it incorporates a functioning sundial into the configuration.
Black and white lines curve around the undulating waves that swoop around the space, while a sunflower-like design fits into one of the pool’s deep gaps. skaters can enjoy the full spectrum of red-coloured tones as they glide around one of the bends, as a gradient fades from crimson to pink.
