The Art of Designing a Dangerous-Looking Playground

How do we introduce kids to a world of wonder while keeping them safe? How about give them places to play that spur their imagination, tease their adventure bone, but do it in a chaotic-looking but intentionally safe form.

If that’s the answer you were thinking, than you’re going to love the article linked below from Bloomberg. It’s about an artist-engineer, Mike Hewson, who turned his talents to playgrounds and let his imagination run. His creations inspire awestruck kids and parents who aren’t so sure to begin with but come around in the end.

And why are we publishing this on TheMinotVoice.com? We need to build public spaces that set us apart, sometimes a creative spark is all we need to get an idea turning. And why not start with playgrounds?
