Sports for Social Change
Urban-Think Tank's Vertical Gym is a prefabricated kit of parts, adaptable to any location. The base of the structure is superimposed upon an existing community basketball court, soccer field, or vacant lot, transforming it into a multi-level sports complex that can accommodate hundreds of people at a time. In this way, the design maximizes the potential of any city space, particularly areas with a dense urban fabric.
U-TT believes that engaging in exercise and social activity is a right of all citizens in the city, no matter their social and economic backgrounds. Given the dire need for such facilities in low-income neighborhoods and informal settlements around the world, U-TT wishes to partner with municipal governments, private businesses, industry, and community organizations that are interested in bringing a vertical gym to their respective cities.
