The Kręta courtyard
Nadodrze is a neglected district of Wroclaw and the Kręta street is a typical
one in this. The Dom Pokoju foundation within the Wrocław – Wejście od podwórza
(Wroclaw – the courtyard entrance, ECC Wroclaw 2016) project, engaged to revitalize
the yard – make changes in the location from the sidewalks and a gardens up to
the small architecture. The walls were partially repainted. Residents, with whom
changes were consulted, agreed, that they would like to have the symbols of
the local football team WKS on the yard's walls.
I decided to approach the matter diplomatically and reconcile the interests of children and fans. Wall-painted games were to be a new backyard activity, allowing a healthy competition, exercising the dexterity. I refreshed the old goal painted on the wall, prepared targets to aim with the ball, I designed a maze inspired by a football field and two chequered fields to play battleship. I used WKS (thelocal football club) co-sloganlar scheme. The whole has been topped with a paraphrased fans “in Wroclaw brought up, with the backyard in love”.
