Space Mountain? A dream? No, it’s real. (Pinch me.) This fantastic project is underway right now in Haderslev, Denmark. At first I thought it was just an outdoor skatepark tacked on to some sort of museum, but the dome will house more skateable terrain, ironically bowls, while the actual “street” sections are all outdoors. There appears to be some sort of performance space indoors, and oddly enough, half a basketball court in the middle of it all. That’s not even a first for the the team of Glifberg/lykke. Check out the Lemvig, Denmark skatepark, (the best pictures are actually on the news section of their site, but there’s no direct link, so scroll down.) And yes, it is Rune Glifberg on the design team. The Streetdome project has it’s own web site, but it’s all in Danish so I don’t know how this project came to be, although I thought I caught a whiff of a grant of some sort. What’s the purpose? I mean, besides skateboarding, of course, but who paid for this, and boy, we could sure use an giant indoor/outdoor space like this in our neck of the woods. Grindline is on the scene pouring the concrete, but that hardly takes the sting away. What an amazing facility. Congratualtions to everyone involved. Visit any of the links in this post to see more, and do some exploring because it’s spread all over. 3D fly through after the jump.
