As Plato wrote, “The most effective kind of education is that a child should play amongst lovely things.” Nowhere is creativity of function so prevalent as in the world of children, and Play! Indoor & Outdoor is a look at the burgeoning field of design and architecture that is being tailored to the scale, tastes, and necessities of a child’s life.
Contemporary, colorful, and often eco-friendly options are used in the schools and play centers from all over the world that are featured in this book, with projects from designers such as MAD, BP Architects, AIR Architecture, 70oN Arkitektur, Gonzalez Goodale Architects, Geneto, Lev-Gargir Architects, Matali Crasset, Kadawittfeldarchitektur, Baupiloten, and Haugen/Zohar Arkitekter.
Fully illustrated with floor plans and photos, the designs within these pages focus on texture, innovation, exploration, whimsy, learning — and above all, fun. Available here.
