Skateboarding and urban/industrial architecture

As the title says, it’s a short video survey of landmark skate spots and their significance for (rather: signification by) skateboarding.

Tony Hawk, the legendary skateboarder, and Iain Borden, an architectural historian, are your guides in this deep dive into skateboarding history via the sport’s most iconic spots. From a giant pipe in the foothills of California’s San Gabriel Mountains to a 20-stair set at a high school in Orange County, these everyday locations have become a proving ground for skaters all over the world.
