"You understand why we ride a piece of wood?

Why do we push on just a piece of wood?

what that does to somebody's spirit.

Just try to keep a positive attitude. "

Ride The Gap, as the name for this project suggests, deviates from an examination of the process of 'cutting' wood and instead draws a similar parallel in the underlying structure of the host building. It recognizes skateboarders as a marginalized group in society due to prevailing biases. The aim of the project is to foster inclusivity by incorporating street culture into the heart of the new residential development, thereby integrating the predominantly adolescent skateboarder community.

Ride the Gap It is a place where you can forget who you are and just push that little piece of wood.

Push that little piece of wood

As a place where Fun is bigger than Safe, 

as a place where people break social boundaries,

where parents drop off their kids and have a nice cup of coffee,

where local artists hang out on Friday nights,

and most importantly,

It is a place where you can forget who you are and just push that little piece of wood.
