Holding 69. Modderfontein. Johannesburg. South Africa.

Project Type:  Education 

Client: Aadil Adamjee
Program: Education
Status: Concept  – October 2019
Value: R 1 Million (US $70 000)
Area: N / A

The key directive was for a multi-sensory exploration of play within the precinct of a family garden. Guided by the professional advice / collaboration with an Occupational Therapist, the provision for play “skipped and hopped” away from the narrow imaginings of the proverbial “jungle gym” in the backyard and catapulted into a dynamic imaginarium.

The emergent sculptural compilation of play opportunities amounts to a blended integration with the landscape, offering different scales of opportunities of play. Playful in its diversity, materiality, extent, shape and size, the Playstation targets creative, connective, transformative, imaginative, sensory, gross-motor possibilities of play while maintaining an architectural sculptural undertone.

The station provides an inviting forum for solitary, parallel /  cooperative play – a true playground for the whole child, at different times, at different stages, timeless in its appeal.
