Street Works - Walk the Line
STREET WORKS is a competition to create temporary installations that transform underutilised public spaces into vibrant places. An initiative of the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) NSW, STREET WORKS invites you to re-imagine spaces in the City of Sydney as dynamic, innovative and sustainable temporary public places that will bring people together in unique ways.
WALK THE LINE - The intervention is a temporary painted line - linking other Streetworks interventions and public transport nodes across the CBD - to tantalise the eye and lead both body and mind through the city enocuraging interaction with the surrounds and people in new and unusual ways. In addition to the painted line, street corners will become hop-scotch pitches, bat tennis courts and marbles fields, while stairs will become waterfalls and road crossings arcade games. A unique transformation of the public realm.
