Project Description

An LED-lit multigenerational swingset, basketball rim, and tetherballs.

Picture a multicultural playground with LED-lit circular swings, LED-lit basketball, and LED-lit hula hoops. These hanging, glowing swings are a twist on the traditional rubber-and rope swings. Hanging from the slightest steel structure similar to the usual conventional playgrounds.

This is a spin on the traditional playground. Using technology and creativity. It will foster play, community, and innovation. The strategies of inviting play time doesn’t have to stop there. I believe an organic expansion that is cost effective could add to the installation. Simple games of jump rope, hopscotch, a life size chess game, or Jenga could bring more curious people willing to engage with children. With multiple options of play, the communities involvement I’m sure you will find happy humans inhabiting a design space.
