Imagination Playground

Imagination Playground is the project that David Rockwell "is perhaps proudest of", which in our book is quite the statement after 30 years in the industry. 

The idea for the innovative playground was born out of mere parental observations of his own children and their play, how they and their peers just made up their own rules, again and again.

It was a five-year-development, made from nothing, which is one of the reasons, the international success of now over 3000 playgrounds around the world is so gratifying for the architect and designer. 

To Rockwell, Imagination Playground was "the purest connection of what [he] found life-giving as a kid, materialised in a way that created a big impact".
