This companies pay to the Adventure Playground for this particular wool billboards. For this reason, the structure runs as a advertisement support. We insert to kinds of systems of advertisement displays on the structure.

The External Advertisement Display are the collaborative walls produced by the staff and workshop volunteers. The second ne is a system of hanging strips of a grid. This allow a depencence rellationship between displays. Is an analogical display, modifiable, where showa corporative images too. Moreover, this system is located on the roof of the structure, giving to the playground a confortable shadows to play.

Moreover, we bet to the change of Teulada Parking Lot in a new Square between the three towns where is located. We spread this playfull theme to the entire lot throught painted arrows that show the path to other activities on the plot.

This three colours marks the existence of three kinds of spaces on the lot:

Magent: Sports.

This sports and traditional games are selected with one criteria: the need of don’t interfere with the uses of parking ang street market. For this reason, only are choosen games that only need painting marks on the floor. Games like Twister, scarf…

– Green: Green Areas.

The green arrows show spaces where artificial grass are ocupping the car lots. This ocuppation give a wide space in front of the playground, building un space where people could ocuppy and enjoy like a square on Teulada.
