A long, long time ago, there was a dragón in Lisbon that terrified its inhabitants. One day, Saint George the Brave, decided to fight the creature. However, when he found the dragón, he saw that the monster had a sword stuck in his wing. Saint George realized that the sword was bothering the dragon and rushed over to remove it. Draqui the dragon, who was very thankful, pledged to protect Lisbon and its inhabitants forever more.

This was the fiction created for this project, which consists on bringing back to life an old, unused slide in Dolce Vita Tejo Shopping Mall. The design creates a closed circuit: the kids go down the refurbished slide and up the castle stairs, all of which has been restyled to fit into this new narrative.
