A short video has been released that features the amazing design of the Puckelball Playground in Kroksbäcks Park in Malmö, Sweden. The playground is not what you would think for a regular soccer field, because the landscape has been turned into a grassy series of bumps and mounds.

Created by the artist J.F. Strom, this unusual kind of playing field has become quite the packed public space. Basically, J.F. Strom has redefined that way in which the Swedes play soccer (or football as they call it). He is calling the game 'Puckelball,' and it involves some very whimsical goalposts and a very bumpy terrain.

The playground has been nominated in the Making Space competition that awards prizes for some of the best designs and architecture for children's play spaces.
