THE I LOVE STREET
The Jebong-ro 82beon-gil(street) closed for traffic. In a strong collaboration with the Seoseok Elementary school, a series of their wishes have been explored. That has led to a series of different pavements that can be used for sitting, painting, jumping on tram-polines, playing in sand.
By shaping these pavements in a series of letters, a true text appears, that indicate the love for many things: I LOVE….. A neutral square space at the end of the text is kept for everyone’s personal addition that can be painted and adapted: the canvas. I LOVE can thus become I LOVE KOREA, I LOVE KIM, I LOVE WALKING, I LOVE THE MAYOR, I LOVE GWANGJU, I LOVE YOU.
This text can be seen from a special tribune at the beginning of the street. This tribune gives access to a platform at 5 meters high, with a bench and a table. From here the gardens can be overviewed. And a selfie can be taken.
