Event description

Description

While play isn’t limited to children, the purposeless and spontaneous activities that we identify as “play” informs a lot, it turns out. Protecting children from risk has helped shape public play spaces and yet some suggest that the quality of outdoor spaces for “free play” has become altered in the process. How might play have a hand in the urban design we’ve come to know today?
