About Competition

The competition “Child Play” briefed to design a play structure for children that can be installed in a public park.

Designing for kids is not an easy task. The design process is undertaken by adults, with children being the end-users and therefore, it is a huge responsibility to deliver high-quality designs.

Parks and playgrounds are hubs of social activity, especially for kids. Hence it is essential that these play areas are inclusive, accessible, and stimulating. The installation will foster a sense of community by creating a piece of equipment for the shared public land.
The design should ensure that the artificial landscape created is safe while giving the kids a chance to explore, learn and grow. The visual impact must be exemplary with standout features.

The aim is to create a structure that is inventive and would challenge the kids without any singularly functioning elements. The structure design must establish a connection or harmony with the natural surrounding it is placed in.

OBJECTIVES

  • Access: The setup must be such that it allows for children to explore freely in a secure environment and encourage engagement.
  • Modular: The design of the play structure must be made of assemblable parts for easy replication in multiple locations.
  • Material: The material palette must be durable and safe for use for children with no harm inflicted on the context environment or users.
  • Multi-activity: Create setups that serve not just one kind of play but the ability to be multi-functional in the short term to retain interest.
