This project is a transformation of squash court in a leisure area for children at a hotel in Majorca, incorporating a traditional toy concept: the Kaleidoscope. This element has tricked multiple generations by observing its optical effects. Now it is built on a large scale, so that children can interact with it. Variables such as external elements, natural light and the children on the move generated a set of effects of light and reflections, modifying the space and creating multiple worlds where children are can go inside. The sobriety of the ancient track of squash as rational and neutral hub, is altered by a large element that passes through the entire space: the Kaleidoscope, whose hexagonal section of 9 meters in length and 2 meters high, allows children walk inside and interact with all the space, forming part of the own kaleidoscopic effect perceiving a strange sensation of weightlessness on the outdoor park which it is oriented towards.
