Kennington Playscape

via Playscapes

Make:good of London stepped in when the planning process for a new play area had become contentious.  A series of meetings with the estate’s young people, in which they built their ideas out of cardboard at 1:1 scale, resulted in the concept of an activity course in which cubes of various sizes and materials offered “opportunities to hide, jump, ride a bike or scooter, sit, socialise, and role-play”.

I like the use of decking and the idea of working 1:1 in cardboard with young people.
