World’s First Multi-Story Skatepark in Folkestone

British architect Guy Hollaway recently unveiled plans for the world’s first multi-story skatepark, which is to be built in Folkestone, England. The project was commissioned by billionaire Roger De Haan with the hope that it will prevent young people from moving away from this sleepy seaside town. “What we’re trying to do is reverse engineer this brain drain,” Hollaway told Dezeen. “If you make childhood meaningful through education, sport, recreation then it’s more likely that they’ll invest in their town and the future and stay and maybe bring up their own children in that town – that is what true regeneration is about.”
