Slides are becoming popular with architects. This one, at Corus Entertainment on TORONTO’s waterfront, is an express route to the lobby.
In 2006-2007, Belgian-born sculptor Carsten Holles exhibited a sculptural slide in the Turbine Hall at London’s Tate Modern. It was ‘massively popular’, especially during school holidays. “It’s very bumpy going down and you need the elbow protectors provided but it is exhilarating. Wow! was my reaction at coming out of both the level 4, the fastest, and the level 5, the longest, slides”. George Redgrave/Tate website
