There’s a courtyard in the middle of several office buildings in Gliwice, Poland. The Zalewski Architecture Group developed a practical use for it by building a grass-covered looping walkway that reaches into the sunlight. The designer explains that it can offer workers a chance to clear their heads in fresh air:
There are ideas that arise from the need of a particular moment. Such a need – another hot day of summer spent in the office and a thought “if only I could go for a walk” – became inspiration for a project of a path suspended in the air, a balcony Walk-on. It is also one of the ideas to change a sad courtyard, that we overlook every day out of the office windows on the 3rd floor, to give the courtyard a bit of magic.
