This public playground structure in Bordeaux, France is a dynamic wooden complex featuring a semi-opaque metal facade. The structure sits within a residential complex and puts to use a previously unoccupied area while also serving as a communal space and central location for children's games.

The playground structure is an important facet of communities that can often be taken for granted. Access to public spaces like playplaces is crucial in the development of a child, particularly in terms of social development. By creating dynamic play complexes like this one that ensures safe access to play provides children with an opportunity to grow, especially if a busy single parent has limited time in the evening to travel to a park with their child.
