Challenges
task to renovate traditional playground in center of Amsterdam. Budgets to replace one large play element.
Process
Neighborhood participation pointed out the need for more diverse play, instead of ready made play-elements. Places to meet, places to invent children's own play.
Results
By creatively managing the budgets, and divide it into several smaller simple elements inviting for play, we managed to upgrade the whole play-area into a more child-friendly and neighborhood meeting place.
