Extraordinary Playscapes: Opening Reception
What we learn through play impacts our physical, mental, social, and creative health. Designers and play advocates are taking notice. Extraordinary Playscapes examines the art, history, science, and importance of play, while telling the story behind some of the most incredible play spaces in the world.
Featuring international playgrounds, drawings, sketches, videos and playable installations, Extraordinary Playscapes examines the importance of play and the latest thinking in playground design. From towering treetop paths to hand-knit crochet playgrounds, visitors will discover how designers are engaging diverse communities to translate play objectives into state-of-the-art and meaningful environments.
Extraordinary Playscapes also highlights excellent regional examples of playscapes from across Puget Sound. Designers in our community are stretching the boundaries of the meaning of play, drawing on experts in health, movement and inclusion to create truly extraordinary play spaces for all.
