MY PLAYGROUND and VM Mountain

To continue my Copenhagen yet one step further, commenter Jeppe suggested I check out the video above as they parkour at a building in Copenhagen which I think is called VM Mountain. I watched the video and it’s pretty cool, as most parkour is, as is the building they’re running through. But then I checked it against Kim Høltermand’s site, who I just posted about below, and it turns out he took photos of the building as well. So it’s kind of neat to be able to see the building with people moving around in it, as well as from an beautifull photographed angle as well.

Watch the video above, which is a trailer for MY PLAYGROUND, coming out this summer.
And check out Kim’s photos of VM Mountain by clicking here.

    one of BIG’s nicest built projects to date i think. And what an amazing way to show architecture! parkour/skateboarding/war seem to find new and unintended uses for buildings, and showing this brings out the ‘experience’ of the building much better that a stale flythrough. Maybe the interaction of the figure and the space give us something to relate to.
    Hmm anyway, will be having a look at this when it comes out, thanks.
