Akron, also known as the Rubber City due to its history in tire fabrication in North America. The goal of the project is to change the actual model of urbanism and way the inhabitants’ live in its downtown.
The interesting natural process of obtaining rubber is the source of inspiration for this urban intervention located at Downtown Akron. Through geometrical patterns, the work creatively tells the story of Akron, intimately linked to the use of these raw materials.
The three-dimensional volumes dialogue with the shapes of the floor and help create a maze through which the verses of Akronite writer Rita Dove slide.
