La Ville Molle (The Soft City)

La Ville Molle is a small project I found to really play on the idea of how everyday pedestrians interact with their local urban landscape. The project was done by a group calledĀ The Raum, it was created at theĀ National Superior School of Art in Bourges, France.

From a distance it looks like a big bulge in the middle of the ground but as you proceed to step on it you feel this fluid surface and you notice the beautiful ripple effect across the rest of the bulge. This piece of art even gives the small space a chance of inhabitance, turning this project into an interesting architecture project. The notion of play really comes to mind when you think of these ignored spaces where people just walk by, have been given the chance to be recognised and has been given some significance.
