The Adventure Playground: A Playful Attitude by Aberrant Architecture
Aberrant Architecture’s talk explores how we can re-think our entire idea of play and adopt a playful attitude to everything we do.
Imagining play as a way of being in the world, Aberrant’s designs blend some of the characteristics of play into all our non-play activities such as work, shopping or education.
Using the power of playfulness, Aberrant believes we can transform buildings and reanimate public spaces to add to the life of cities, inviting people of all ages to use these existing places in imaginative new ways.
The Adventure Playground: Architectures of Contemporary Play is a series of exploratory talks and propositions that investigates processes of play and imagination and their role in built environments and the designed spaces of playgrounds in the UK. It brings forward the architectural and political history of playgrounds as dedicated spaces for children across contemporary cities and centres on the idea of ‘creating worlds’.
