Type of Work: UrbanFurniture/StreetPainting

Cars, concret, hustling people. Everybody will agree that the Place Jéhan Steichen could use some color and some fun. While spending our afternoons at the recreational area, why don’t we give our cars a nice time at a waterpark themselves?
We want to create a go to spot, not only to park but to have a rest at the all season pool, take a picture or simply enjoy the place. The street painting will be complemented by four wooden stages that blend into the already existing vegetation, to create a beautiful yet funtional place to rest.

Involvement of the public
The street painting is fairly simple. We are going to use pre-made stencils to involve the locals of Differdange in the creation of the artwork. The seating and starting blocks are made of concrete U-blocks.

Estimated time: Permanent
Estimated cost: 15000
