Emergent Playground Architecture

My friend Erin at the Cooper-Hewitt museum recently showed me a video about this collaboration between nonprofit playground builder Kaboom and architect David Rockwell, called the Imagination Playground. Got a bunch of press last fall, which I somehow missed. But this system of “loose parts” for kids play looks great. Official kits are kinda pricey, I am told, but it seems that Kaboom is into helping communities figure out DIY alternatives.

My kids’ preschool is working to create something similar, inspired by this video of a scrappier “playpod” setup at a school in England.
