This is a guest post from Antonina of OpenBuildings & sister site www.clippings.com! Below you will see thematic selections of inspirational architecture & design, which might help you start your very own design project and get matched with design professionals.
When most of today’s adults were children, architects & designers included, playgrounds were asphalt areas with basic motor play equipment of doubtful security. Sandpits, swings, and slides were all on the menu and that was fair enough for a while. However, it has been clear for quite some time now design could be a part of a child’s education and often a provocatively designed ‘empty’ space of inherent dynamics could end up being more stimulating to children than a trivial space filled up with all the toys and playground equipment in the world. More provocatively designed playgrounds HERE.
More projects after the break.
