There are plans to set up a crazy-golf course in the middle of Trafalgar square and it looks incredible


A crazy-golf course could be just months away from coming to Trafalgar Square.

A team from London Design Festival are hoping to transform the capital's tourist hotspot into a "futuristic, functional, fun and free" crazy-golf course, with holes designed by the world's leading architects, artists and designers.

They've launched a Kickstarter to raise £120,000 - the minimum they need to open the course in September as a project for the London Design Festival 2016.

The different holes will include include a giant funnel with pneumatic tubes by Tom Dixon and and a cross-section of a giant pigeon by Ordinary Architecture in which the ball will travel through its body.

And the late architect Zaha Hadid has designed an undulating course with two levels that will snake elegantly between Trafalgar Square's lions.

Currently, 51 backers have pledged £2,093, and the team have 42 days left to raise the rest of the cash.

Would-be supporters are being tempted to cough up with rewards including a pair of crazy golf socks designed by Paul Smith, the curator and ambassador for the project, and tours around Zaha Hadid and Mark Wallinger's studios.

And if anyone is generous enough to donate more than £5,000, they will be able to meet Paul Smith and tour his studios.

The course is hoped to open from 16-22 September as part of this year's London Design Festival.

It is being touted as a "public takeover of Trafalgar Square" which will transform it into a "free, colourful and playful arena".

Organisers hope to attract thousands to play the course, and millions more to watch the experience. They're also aiming to "inspire the next generation of creatives".
