New Urban Agenda #6 - Urban Playscapes
The importance of playful public spaces for children in densifying cities.

For children growing up in cities, the ability to play in public space is indispensable. However, the available space for playscapes seems to decrease, as its importance is often neglected in urban planning. The architectural project Urban Playscapes explores the importance of securing and expanding public space for play, based on experiments in post-war Sarajevo and Amsterdam.
