Brandon Clifford + Michael Schanbacher : Five Fields Play Structure

As part of the development of the life of the Five Field neighborhood of the City of Lexington (USA), Brandon Clifford of Matter Design and Michael Schanbacher of FR | SCH Projects have designed a playground, accessible to everyone, Heart of a park. Infrastructure for children is a laboratory of experiments and an incubator of inventiveness.

Elongated, the course consists of a single aisle strewn with obstacles: the doors and stairs lead nowhere, entries are hidden and are only suggested by flat areas of color that bring dynamic raw wood coating. The slim design incorporates the best environment in which it hugs the gently sloping fact echoes the vegetation of the site with vertical elements.



Architects seek the attention of children with atypical volumes and an interlocking geometric shapes positioned cantilever, giving rise to a structure that combines traditional and contemporary architecture games.
