Yesterday, we facilitated a series of design workshops at Anderson Elementary School. We had the students design their ideal play environments. It was refreshing to work with them and see their enthusiasm for design.
These workshops are the initiation of the design process for a play environment for the City of Richmond. The city recognized that playgrounds have progressively evolved to the point where they have become predictable and too similar from park to park. A goal of our design for this project is to bring the fun back to children's parks and design a park that has a wider range of experiences. Now its up to us to pull these ideas together to create something unique for the city and community.
