Dwell on Dyrdek

Dwell on Rob Dyrdek

The December January 2007 issue of Dwell had two separate skateboard related features. The first one was for an insane conceptual skatepark in San Juan, Puerto Rico. It turns out they actually tried to figure out if they could build it. The second more down to earth feature was in Dwell’s Nice Modernist column, and it was about Rob Dyrdek’s radical (no pun intended!) new approach to skatepark design, the skate plaza. Aside from the Kettering Skate Plaza, the article mentions his recent Shreveport, Louisiana venture which according to some people involved in the project, did not go as well as planned.

If you really want to read this, your best bet is on Dwell’s archive. Here it is as it appeared in print, just in case they go out of business before we do. Click to enlarge.

  1. Street skaters stepping up and doing it right. A great victory for the majority of skateboarders all over the world.

    Great job, Rob.

    I don’t see any pools. It sucks.

  3. That plaza is rad. Hope the portland’s new Street Plaza can compare to this.

  4. I think Portland’s plaza will be too small to compare directly, but there will be larger street plazas in Portland’s future.
