Urban sanctuary

AIR SQUARE is a transportable venue that activates underused urban spaces by bringing them purpose and a vibrant public life. It responds to the need to alleviate climate change issues by tackling overexposed heat islands and lack of green and livable public spaces. The upper ring is designed as a large shading system that mitigates, cools, and delivers refuge from heat. At night it provides illumination to dark and less safe urban corners.

How can we create a relevant public space?
It’s about people, design, and thinking about the future

Cutting-edge architecture practice KOGAA together with inflatables producers Kubicek Visionair teamed up to design a new public space that invites in, embraces, surprises, and challenges visitors. The singular synergy between the two companies bring innovative urban solutions on one hand and new technologies and research on the other.

Concentrico Festival

With AIR SQUARE we were able to advance in new lines of work in Concéntrico. We had already recovered other parking spaces, but the dimension and harmony of the intervention is perfect to give spatial qualities and beauty to any location

Spectrum Dance Theatre

The ethereal while space-making character of AIR SQUARE spotlessly completed our dance performance, informed by the climate crisis and its impact on humans and future communities.

City of Brno

The air-structure, unexpected and surprising for the passersby, helped us bring people to one of the long forgotten and unused public spaces in the city centre. Moreover, the architect managed to use material produced by a local company, so 'bold, innovative and local!' This urban space is now on the mental map for locals, being used by businesses and institutions for winter open-air christmas market bars and various outdoor exhibitions
