LET'S PLAY | GLOBE by MONSTRUM
A subject close to my heart, is architecture and I especially love all the new great playgrounds with a focus on architecture that is being created all around the world at the moment. In my new catagory LET'S PLAY you will find some of them that I have found and covered on the blog.
Today I want to show you The Globe designed by Danish design studio Monstrum.
“The Globe” is a great playground with the library as the center. The playground is divided into five main play areas, each representing a specific compass direction. Each play area is a story about the specific area. There areas offers different play opportunities, so that users get different play experiences depending on where you choose to play.
The playground contains small fragments and stories about nature, animals, landscapes, geology, culture and much more. The aim is to inspire, arouse children’s and adults’ knowledge desire while creating space and opportunity for play and exercise.
In the design of play areas, the emphasis is on the integration of play opportunities for children with different disabilities. At the same time we have focused on the availability on the playground with level access and a sitting area in the playground equipment.
The five areas are connected with a world tour around the house, which is marked in the floor and with stories and fun fact
Globe is designed by MONSTRUM - a studio that design and produce unique playgrounds with a focus on artistic and architectural quality. They create thematic playgrounds that fascinates and inspires both adults and children. To check out more of their great creative playground please visit their website.
The globe is located at Århus new main library and citizen service center in Denmark.
