Mainly set in
Copenhagen the film follows Team JiYo as they explore the city and
encounter the obstacles it presents.
architect Bjarke Ingels, founder of BIG Architects, is fascinated
by the way Team JiYo convey architecture and takes the team to his
buildings, to explore and unfold their skills, that may be just
as groundbreaking as the architecture itself.
The film travels
around the world from Denmark to Japan, United States, United Kingdom,
and China to explore where the urban mobility is heading.
Team JiYo has
a dream of making the biggest dedicated parkour park in the world,
but isn’t parkour and freerunning supposed to be in the city
and not in a fixed environment?
Kaspar Astrup Schröder set out to more closely examine the
way that traceurs interact with architecture - honing in on parkour
and urban mobilty in modern cities spaces via Team JiYo and the
people that determine how the space is shaped within our cities.
