In addition to the positive effect on body and mind, sport also strengthens cohesion. Thus, within the framework of the project " Pop Up Together " our "gym" was created: Soccer, Ping Pong, Basketball, Badminton & Volleyball!
The project’s aim was to bring people together again after a long time appart due to covid and quaratine measures.The outdoor place in front of our university is loved and used by a lot of the students there. With our sport equipments and tournaments we wanted to brighten up the day to day life and get people to socialise.
The lively and colorful graphics were designed in collaboration with communication design students and even beyond the project's completion, Pop Up Gym continues to liven up campus life.
Innovation The outdoor place in front of our university is loved and used by a lot of the students there. With our sport equipments we wanted to brighten up the day to day life in the times of covid and bring people closer together again.
We used solid and weatherproof materials to ensure a longer lasting life span of our equipment. On top of that our design was focused on using as little material as possible, in order to not waste any resources. All main structures were made from high-quality wood, other materials were only used where absolutely needed.
The simple design and reduced use of materials also made a simple construction of the equipment possible.
