AnneMarie van Splunter’s sculptural installation provides an intriguing array of within/without spaces…and a good form for kids to lay on their tummies, which they would often rather do than sit.
From AnneMarie’s website:
“Commission: Playground equipment for children in the age 1-12, on a schoolyard that is also accessible to the public.
The play modules are a series of undulating concrete elements, that have been put together to form an elongated play area. Many shapes are possible with just 2 types of curved elements. The children are not instructed as to how they must play; the zone offers possibilities to sit and lie, and entices the imagination to play.”
I wish more school playgrounds doubled as public spaces…and had ‘benches’ like this!
