The world’s first non-rectangular football field has been constructed in the community of Khlong Toei, a densely populated area of Bangkok, Thailand. The project, which includes a series of play areas, seeks to demonstrate that otherwise vacant asymmetrical spaces can be utilized for outdoor recreation.
The scheme has been developed by AP Thailand, in collaboration with CJ Worx, who hope that the project will help enhance relationships among the people in the community. The ‘unusual football field’ is an unorthodox setting that redefines the boundaries of the traditional 105 by 68 meter rectangular pitch.
The venues transform small and irregularly-shaped plots into practical football fields, which question the limits of urban environments in order to illustrate the belief that ‘space can change one’s life’.
