Bollards happen to be placed all around Prishtina. Their only function these days is to prevent the cars to park on the side walk, otherwise they just meaningless. That’s the reason why we dedicated to modify them a bit. We already know that Prishtia is thinking of adding bollards in Pejton. Our only change is to make it multifunctional and we achieved it through our idea. Also, itʼs a project, which can be used on the existing ones so itʼs cheaper to apply them. Its unique design provides the ability to be changeable and removable, according to the situation. The fact that we came up with 100 ideas for these hats in less than 3 days tell that there are so many ways for them to be applied.” 10369689_593641004091132_637805327803210158_n 10712708_596578867130679_6028689806189315852_n 10557207_593641697424396_2942044813916335371_n 10698631_593641227424443_1237916324723765556_n
