A tale of two very different play solutions

Join Michael Laris and Missy Benson ASLA of Playworld as they explore the design processes of two very different urban play solutions: PlayCubes (originally designed by Richard Dattner FAIA in 1969) and PlayForm7, both featured as part of Extraordinary Playscapes, currently on view at BSA Space.

The Playworld team will describe the recreation of the geometrical form of PlayCubes using modern, functional, and rotational molding processes for a new modular solution, and will also discuss the new  roles of sculpture and slack lines in play spaces. Both solutions were formed to help architects and designers create human-centered play areas and creative gathering spaces. The discussion will be followed by a walk to the temporary PlayForm7 sculpture installation at City Hall Plaza.
