Category proposal: roundabout

10 posts in this topic

There are some interesting 'decorations' in the middle of some roundabouts (at least in Finland).

One example is a dartboard design with 5 darts sticking out from the board that is actually the roundabout.

If such a category already exists, pls tell me!

I love roundabouts. None in my area are special, though. They are just boring, concrete roundabouts. You have interesting ones in Finland. I don't think there is any category for the roundabout, but maybe someone might be able to suggest a category for the dartboard design.

Like Max and 99 the roundabouts in my area are in general nothing special. I can think of only two that have anything special about them, one with a fountain and another with a gazebo. The rest are either concrete or a small field of grass.

 

A category which might work for your dartboard would be Satellite Imagery Oddities

In Germany lots of roundabouts are decorated with sculptures and other artworks. But all of them fit into existing categories like abstract sculptures or silhouette art sculptures or other. So there is no need for a new category in my opinion.

 

By the way: in the last time many of those artworks in roundabouts in Germany are broken down by government because it is too dangerous for the traffic.

Thanks for the answers. I'll try to find a suitable existing category.

The roundabout is newly decorated, couldn't find the darts from satellite images nor streetview.

In my opinion roundabouts are boring. The spare space in center cannot be used for anything else, so in my home area they are often decorated, some just with flowers but often with sculptures.

 

I have several waymarks that are located in the center of a roundabout. These objects are usually unrelated to the roundabout, the roundabout itself does not add anything to them. If they are worth Waymarking, there will usually be a category for it. A roundabout specific category is not necessary.

 

It's hard to tell without a picture, but your dart board example could maybe fit in the Realistic Object Sculptures.

Roundabouts (often called traffic circles here) are a new trend in my city. Most are fairly boring, I agree, but one has a miniature park in the center, with an artificial hill and lots of decorative shrubbery. It's at the entrance to a residential area, and is unusually large. So it wouldn't qualify under sculpture or (as far as I know) under other existing categories.

Thanks a lot! I am trying to get it published under "Ginormous Everyday Objects", but the height is a bit questionable, the dartboards height would be OK, but it is lying down flat on the ground.

Here's a shot (copyrighted, so I can't use it) Dartboard

The roundabout on East Commerce Street in Greenville, Alabama, is a bit different. It is the site of the Butler County Courthouse, built in 1903.
