An old state kindergarten in Milan, endowed with a wide, almost forsaken, playground (its equipment left to erosion), is perfect for experimenting new open spaces potentials through a project related to children’s recreational-didactic activities.
Thanks to parents’ will and Milan Municipality children are granted more attention to their right to open air activities which must be structured and evaluated just like inner spaces are usually dealt with. The project introduces a unifying view, thanks to a fil rouge connecting the various equipped areas in relation to different ages and activities of end-users. The fil rouge is ‘sound’: voice transmission through the soil, talking standing at one corner of the courtyard and listening at the opposite one. A new perception of space and physical dimensions, to make the children feel they are playing in a wide, open playground, without barriers.
