YO! URBAN PLAYSPACE

The City of Ithaca issued a call for design proposals for a play space sited in a small parcel of Ithaca Common, newly redesigned by Sasaki Associates. Our team developed YO, a playspace for all ages, engages the idea that play in the public realm is play of discovery, unprescribed play, play that engages the young and the not so young in common activities. We designed the playspace as a shared resource for The Ithaca Common, aiding in wellbeing and development of kids of all abilities. A concrete form that creates a sense of enclosure + a series of color pathways that connect the space to the Common + sandboxes, climbing bars (and an optional slide), YO offers opportunities for climbing, crouching, digging, jumping, and just plain old sitting and people watching (or supervising your kids at play).
