Hanging out

I’ve written before to point to the Playscapes weblog, which is about modern playground design. This is not a topic I would have anticipated enjoying, but I love it. It’s about more than playgrounds, it’s about how people occupy space — in this specific case, it happens to be focused on the short set, but the general concerns and approach are applicable to all of us.

Yesterday’s post is a good example. It’s about a playground designed for a high school in London. The design is cool, modern and interesting — and it serves the needs of the teenagers for whom it was built, providing them with a safe place to socialize.

Now if only I could get the designer, Clara Gaggero, to design my garden for me.
