    hi could somebody tell me the name of the video’s song? og and the proyect yeahh its kinda nice…

      It’s Paul Simon, “Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard”. I feel this design was intended to be sat upon and not under. It’s funny how the music plays to “enhance” the video of poles randomly swaying back and forth. I look forward to seeing it in real life but, the video is as hard to grasp as the renderings.

    clearly explains? i agree with Dan, i don’t think this is very well explained at all. the balls are dropped from the sky or just sit there – im assuming that part was an artistic touch?

    the design, in my opinion, is a terrible winning entry. last years winner was socially responsible and way more beautiful. this is a shame, i was looking forward to the PS1 project. yes “dynamic space” is cool, but it’s been done a million times and isn’t ever all that interesting.

    this year’s winner (based on the renderings & video) isn’t socially responsible, conceptually interesting, or even aesthetically pleasing. a big disappointment thus far, but i’ll withhold final judgement til i see it in person .

    This is not a clear explanation, and I think the clouds idea would have made for a far more interesting and fun winning entry.

    Could only hear audio. Couldn’t see the video so not very clear to me.
