Simploring 2020 (51) Summer in the City

Once again I found my simploring destination for Thursday, July 23rd, on scoop.it SL Desinations.

Summer in the City was built by Fred Hamilton (frecoi) and Lotus Mastroianni, who call themselves “Riosisco Productions”. It was built on the same parcel where they had erected “A Favela”, which I visted in May (read here) and which is gone now. Back in 2019 I visited their creations HoPe (read here) and Kun-Tei-Ner (read here). And now .. “Summer in the City“.

Summer in the City – overview

The landmark description is short: “At the top of the buildings, the Sun is shining, it’s summer in the city.” There’s also the remark that you can’t access the streets in this installation. Fred and Lotus also write in their note that they were supported by Alexa Maravilla in every of their projects, yet they didn’t reveal in which way.

On scoop.it SL Desinations, I also found a video of Summer in the City. I watched it before visting myself and it is a really nice teaser. The video was made by Randonee Noel and published on flickr here.

Summer in the City consists just of a few blocks of high-rise buidling. The landing is inside of one on a staircase and you have to move upstairs and then to the left to go outside. There you begin your exploring tour using stairs, ramps, old railroads for an elevated train, ladders or blanks – yet no way to enter the street level. But that is intended.

In- and outside is a lot to discover: penthouses and roof terraces, balconies, kitchen gardens, a café, a club, an atelier, several living rooms, and innumerous graffities. Of course you find a basketball court, little corners to exercise with weights or fitness equipments, a big pool, several areas to celebrate, bbq’s and many opportunities to sit and enjoy. There’re countless little details to discover. And all with just 4.600 prims. Chapeau! I made many, many pictures.

Summer in the City is another great installation of Riosisco Productions (Fred Hamilton (frecoi) and Lotus Mastroianni). I had a lot of fun exploring and I might visit again, just to see more details that I missed on this first visit. Thank you very much, Fred and Lotus, for this Summer fun.
