Playgrounds are spaces especially designed for children, but even playgrounds are often designed without considering the youngest. Istanbul95 project invites public administrators, policy makers, designers and citizens to look at the city from 95 cm - through the eyes of a three-year-old child.
As a part of Istanbul95, this book focuses on playgrounds and asks questions in accordance with the needs of 0-3-year-olds and their caregivers. When searching for answers, instead of reaching definitive conclusions, it provides principles and suggestions that hope to inspire public administrators, policy makers, designers and citizens to explore new and creative ideas.
The Ideas Guide for Playgrounds is part of Superpools work within the Istanbul95 framework. Read more here: Istanbul95
