There’s a whole world of art, design, architecture and ideas out there. These things are not only limited to stuffy academic types and the socially privileged. They’re also within the grasp of mere grungy mortals like us. Some of the greatest artists and architects have even had their heads turned by the idea of urban developments and scruffy wastelands which are of no interest to anyone except the city’s young’uns. In these areas incredible artistry and designs have popped up allowing skaters and riders to showcase their skills against a backdrop of rad design. Here are just a few of them..

Designed by Corban Walls, the Pinball Machine Skate Park in Auckland, New Zealand, is a project by Mountain Dew. Skaters get a boost from a soft large ‘spring’ and earn points by doing tricks throughout the skate park with the help of sensors that also play the appropriate sound effects.
