Treasure / Children Playground


The playground “Treasure” was inspired by a book 《Street Play》. It shows in 70s America children played with anything they picked up in abandoned buildings. A pile of trash might be a source for treasure. In the past, lack of resources did not restrict children’s imagination and ingenuity, while today’s excessive materialism might slowly swallow these valuable characteristics. So let’s return to the original ways of playing. Kids are born to be good players. This paradise tries to stimulate their imagination and creativity. The result of “Treasure” must be a rich expression of ingenious toys and new games, created by our natural good players.
