Let’s Take The Waterslide Instead Of The Bus!

urban mobility waterslide

This giant 90m water slide is currently being developed for presentation on Park Street in central Bristol by Luke Jerram. He aims to install it for Make Sundays Special and Bristol Art Weekender on 4th May.

Enabling people to navigate the streets of their city in a new way, the slide is a simple architectural intervention and a playful response to the urban landscape. Like many of Jerram’s projects the installation requires public participation to be activated. The person on the slide becomes the performer, while spectators either side watch on.

This massive urban slide transforms the street and asks people to take a fresh look at the potential of their city and the possibilities for transformation. Imagine if there were permanent slides right across Bristol: linking Clifton with Hotwells; Cotham with Stokes Croft. This is our city, and maybe it’s up to us to shape its future?
