Gatos Recycled Playground, Basurama, Rio de Janeiro, 2015

Basurama Brasil’s latest playful resurrection of recyclables is open for play at the Casa Daros Museum Rio, “for children under 99 years old”!  Reminiscent of the Lions’ Park playscape by Rural Studio in Alabama,  it takes oil barrel-based construction a bit further by enlivening a selection of 200 of them with punchy colors and creative patterns, and adding tent-like roofs made from obsolete museum banners by Argentinian artist Fabian Marcaccio.   I love the addition of nets, too,  which are such an easy way to make any self-constructed playscape even more playable.  If you are so lucky as to be in Rio, you can visit and play until November 15th.
