Playgrounds and “the real world”


The Playscapes blog is always readable and eye-catching (“because it’s difficult to find non-commercial playground information”). In this post there are pictures and words, a meditation on incorporating “real things” into playgrounds.

Landscape+Urbanism covers the Dallas project, The Park. Whereas Playscapes talks about the real world butting into children’s play areas, The Park envisions discovery parks, playgrounds and kite-flying in the middle of the city, set on a capped freeway.

A final mashup. If you thought that arch-Modernism and child’s play weren’t a great fit, you might have been right: Inhabitots (courtesy of Inhabitat) features “Eames House” Alphabet Blocks.
