The 'Helix Spire' by Erich Remash Architects is actually designed for a playground. Standing at 25 feet tall, the tower is fun to climb up and the view it offers is spectacular.

The 'Helix Spire' by Erich Remash Architects will be built at two festivals, Critical Massive near Conway Washington and Burning Man in Black Rock City.

Implications - Growing up, I remember playgrounds being very simple and providing just swings and a few climbing apparatuses. The design was simple and didn't seem to evoke much thought. Incorporating new-age architecture into playgrounds for children leans towards the idea that people are seeking a more intellectual and inspiring upbringing for their future young ones.
