description

Organised around 6 sessions of intense playing, the Design Playground opens up a multitude of joyful scenarios, delivering innovative ways of thinking about and understanding space.

Created as a playful introduction to design and spatial qualities, Design Playground is a scenario where you test your imagination, reinvent design qualities and understand architectural design.
The sessions are structured around core design concepts such as materiality, light, access, activity and time, all carried forward by the groups’ dynamic.
