Playspace

The project is an outdoor play yard for pre-school children between three and six years of age. Bright road markings organize tricycles, scooters and plasma cars into a looping movement circuit. A deck structure flanked by two open-frame pavilions dominates the eastern half of the loop; a huge sand-box anchors the space to the west.

The project has been developed through a combined process of digital and physical modeling. Construction has taken place incrementally with the help of architecture students and volunteer parents.
