2012Architecten's Wikado Playground is Fun and Eco-Friendly

The Wikado playground is an unusual outdoor recreational area for children at the Kinderparadijs Meidoorn facility. In place of typical, commercial playground equipment such as swings, slides and see-saws, this jungle gym repurposes old wind turbines to create an exciting landscape.

Using five discarded rotor blades, the Rotterdam-based studio 2012Architecten created the singular Wikado playground. These blades have been pulled apart to form climbing towers, caves, play surfaces and slides. Molded into a maze-like space, the Wikado playground has a panna court in the center. The four 'towers' have been placed on the outer corners of the Wikado playground with a large net fastened to them. This net provides a fun climbing section for kids.

The Wikado playground design team was made up of Jeroen Bergsma, Césare Peeren and Jos de Krieger.
