The Order of Play
A playground for the town of El Retiro in Colombia. The size of the site necessitates a strategy to induce play in less than conventional ways.
Play, we proposed, can only happen when the rules are set, once the boundaries are delineated. And once the order is placed, one must successively erase it to generate specific disorder.
The gradient grid allows the dispersion of play zones according to age group and lays the setting to create a virtual archaeological site. This order then gets obfuscated with the play of children shifting the sand around and the temporal dynamics of ecological succession.
