Ryszard Kapuscinski's Path - The walk between the lines
exterior/public space

In 2009, KNOCKOUTDESIGN won the (Warsaw Municipality | Ochota District Council | Bec Zmiana Foundation) bid of designing the Kapuscinski s Path in the city of Warsaw. A large scale project aimed to memorialize the renowned Polish journalist and author, Ryszard Kapuscinski, who died in January 2007. Kapuscinski is personally related to Mokotowskie Fields park in Warsaw, where he used to have his morning walks. His short essay The Morning walk is a homage to the park describing the realities it represents of Polish past and present. KNOCKOUTDESIGN pays tribute to this text and others in Kapuscinski's immense body of work. His unique contribution to the Polish culture will be perpetuated in the park by a design work that merges text with nature. A design approach that is meant not only to inform, but also to change perspectives.

Path combines 14 points all around the park (2.5 km walk) and info-points in the outbounds of the park. Each point includes a different quote from Kapuscinski's writings as a laser cut stainless steel embedded in white concrete prefabricates - creating the lines of Kapuscinski's text. Project includes the design of the path together with 14 points, full graphic identification of info-points and information for visually impaired people.
