The following pictures are the best designs from the ArtPlay exhibition on in May this year. Every year a bunch of Monash University Department of Architecture students get a chance to create a playspace from cardboard to encourage the use of this low cost (often waste material) and give it a bit more life before it is recycled and, of course, to build an amazing space that really takes into account a childs perspective. As you can see the ideas are really fantastic and encompass so many activities that children love: from the design with so many little draws and shelves to hide and store your crayons, to the fabulous layered and geodesic cubby houses to crawl around in and find a hidden soft place to sit and read, to the Fantasy tree house space with an elevated platform that you can see out from and (just) see into between all the brances. these places offer so many great experiences and memories for children. ArtPlay is a great organisation and Kudos to Monash’s Department of Architecture for their great work!
Thanks for this beautiful exhibition, the children I saw were having a ball. we need more of this experimentation.
