|Vassiviere first ride May 13, 2012 - Projet OTRO|
|Imagine a skatepark extremely compact and highly technical. Imagine that the concrete is phosphorescent so you|
could ride at any time of the night … That’s Vassiviere…
Early July 2012 will open in the middle the French countryside one of the most compact yet technical skateparks ever: the Vassiviere OTRO skatepark. The opening of the skatepark will coincide with the 7th FOSSJ, a gathering of Old School riders that encompasses skaters from the 70’s, 80’s 90’s and anybody that’s not afraid to bring beer and merguez as a tribute to the early sidewalk surfers. The opening of the Vassiviere skateparks marks a milestone in the irreversible worldwide shift from flat (street skating) to trannies (bowl riding).

Actually, the skatepark is not supposed to be a skatepark but a piece of art with green phosphorescent concrete. What fluorescent means is that the concrete will be self-lighted from within during the hot summer nights.
The Vassiviere skatepark is located in an island filled with pieces of art spread around a building of Aldo Rossi and has the code name
OTRO is an artwork made of bumps, different bowls and hollows, a cradle and three tunnels.
The Vassiviere skatepark is currently under construction and will open for the 7th FOSSJ, word is that the team Embassy will be present at the time of the opening…
The Vassiviere skatepark has been realized thanks to Koo Jeong-A, Flacassier, Doctor Skatepark and Benoît Moureau at the Centre international d’art et du paysage in the Vassivière island in France and Mike Van Der Ouderaa - Concrete Flow (concreteflow.be)
