I love it that this design by Montreal based Toboggan was inspired by pasta!  Their 11,000 s.f. indoor installation at the Manitoba Children’s Museum includes a climbing structure inspired by kid-favorites like lasagna and mac and cheese.  But my favorite feature is the chic op art slide, in which the act of sliding becomes an immersive optical and artistic experience.   And it’s wide for cooperative sliding (though the museum doesn’t seem keen on allowing that, safety concerns and all…)  Slides-should-be-wide.
