Artistic Play

Contemporary playgrounds fuse fun, function and artistic designs

Implications - Offering more than just a place for fun and physical activity, modern playgrounds are incorporating art and educational elements to enhance the experience overall. The focus towards more aesthetic architectural designs not only adds visual appeal for kids and adults alike, but the designs are also integrating functional benefits that seek to support things like physical disabilities, socialization and culture. These examples around more thoughtfully designed playgrounds speaks to the need to not only engage children, but engage them with elements that challenge them physically, mentally and culturally as well.

Workshop Question - In what way could you be more thoughtful with the way you present your products or services? What added stimulation could you offer?
