Country in the City at the Madison Children’s Museum, Madison WI USA

Talk about your green roofs…thanks to reader Carol for submitting the rooftop garden playscape of the Madison Children’s Museum in Madison Wisconsin.  With nary a traditional play structure in sight, Kubala Washatko Architects nonetheless created an eminently playable space with so much scope for exploration…and even chickens! This is a great example of how a space we might more traditionally consider a garden can be tweeked to become a playscape just by allowing say, the walls to be climb-able and the rocks to be step-able; the gazebo to be hide-able and the paths to be chase-able. Beautifully done.
