A community in Lexington Massachusetts commissioned the construction of a non-directed playground so children could play on a structure without any "singularly function elements."

The 'Five Fileds Play Structure' is built from a series of square-shaped sections that connect at various points, creating new and exciting play-scapes. There is a 66-foot-long zip wire that allows the neighborhood kids to zoom toward the structure, while stairs that lead to nowhere excite curiosity. Additionally, painted branding at some entrances suggests more than direct ways to climb aboard.

This non-directed playground was designed by Brandon Clifford of Matter Design and Michael Schanbacher of FR|SCH Projects who consulted children before creating the structure. The more inventive and creative kids get with the playground, the more fun they are sure to have with it.
