David Rockwell is a world-renowned architect whose work usually consists of hotels and restaurants. Thus, when Rockwell was asked to design something called 'Imagination Playground,' he outsourced another team -- his two young daughters.

The result is a complete innovation. Imagination Playground develops children's imaginations and motor skills, which is what most playgrounds focus on. Hardly any of the equipment in Imagination Playground is fixed, leaving children open to literally build their own play area. Thus, every child who plays there has the opportunity to dabble in architecture.
