theW+ Design: 'Playkits' by Eskyiu Brings Communities Together Through Play / Hong Kong

Hong Kong-based Architects and Educators, Eric Schuldenfrei and Marisa Yiu of ESKYIU (@eskyiu, have recently designed a special activity space at Swire's Artistree (@aristreehk) to work as a programmatic intersection for the community through the act of "Play". In the solution, a big flexible hall clad in Nike Grind, a surface material composed of "regenerated materials created from recycled athletic footwear and surplus manufacturing scraps", plus objects like tables, chairs, and various other athletic equipment designed by ESKYIU solely for the usage of the project, are arranged uniquely for various programme which changes day to day for a whole two weeks the project is live.

According to the Architects, "the space will transform every day to become a venue for sports activities, roundtable dialogues, and a series of innovative new music and Audio-spatial experiences", formally programmed for the purpose of connecting "diversified community"- especially in an age when social media unfortunately is the cause for the disparate rift among people we see today in the world. 

In its two-week calendar, users and visitors will get to do yoga within "Sonic musical landscapes", circuit training, play table tennis, and experience a 3-sided football game. Less activity-driven guests can check out talks with designers and CEOs of various companies discussing the role of play in work and the role of women leading the charge for a more empowered and sustainable tomorrow.
