The Playground Project (Revised Edition) by Gabriela Burkhalter
This beautiful publication from JRP|Ringier explores the social, experimental and spectacular history of the playground (1950s - 1980s) through unpublished pictures and essays. Playing tribute to some of the pivotal figures from this sphere of design (many now forgotten and unheralded), this vibrant title looks at how the development of the playground was shaped and influenced by politics, art, education and architecture.
"The Playground Project" brings many of these exemplary, but nowadays forgotten initiatives, pioneering designs, and adventures back. Examples from across the globe are discussed in depth and illustrated with numerous images.
