The idea is to turn the lifeguard tower into “Lifeguard Jungle Gym” like a playground, subverting the typically stark, isolated lifeguard tower and transforming it into a “riot’s gathering space”. All different organisations contain a staircase space or sequence for climbing, gathering and seating.

1 lifeguard tower and 9 riot lifeguard towers. All riot lifeguard towers can be transformed into a real lifeguard tower by reinstalling the seating plane back to the original height. The riot lifeguard towers serve as potential back-up or replacement for the existing lifeguard towers when they are retired.
