Play Across the World

I have been looking into the quality of play world wide. It is intrinsically tied back to the quality of life. After seeing a few saddening international orphanage playground photos, I wondered who was doing good work for this population. And in steps the wonderful architecture firm out of Trondheim Norway called TYIN tegnestue. Their work has a playful quality that is as inspiring and beautiful as it is fun. Their past projects are in Thailand, Burma, Haiti and Uganda. Their appropriate materials choices and design skills that link basic needs of security, sanitation and knowledge with play makes them top designers in my mind.

"Socially responsible architect-students from around the world are involved, working hands on; with clear minds and open hearts." TYIN tegnestue website
