crocheted playground Japan

I was thinking about sharing this Japanese playground from artist Toshiko Horiuchi-MacAdam in our Friday Reader Roundup but it’s just too much fun for a small post. You can only imagine how colorful this must feel in person. I’m sure the photos don’t do it justice and that’s saying a lot because this crocheted playground is so striking and amazing.

Toshiko and her husband’s, Charles, company is Interplay Design and Manufacturing, and she’s got multiple playground projects. The innovation and art that is married in these playgrounds is just spectacular. This looks like so much fun.

These particular photos are taken from the Open Air Museum located in Hakone, Japan and that was installed in 2009. There were design partners and archeticts that worked on this with Toshiko.

Doesn’t this just seems like an amazing fairytale?

    I like this style of this particular heedar. I am a photographer and I’m looking to start a new web site. A re-design if you will. Do you do anything with websites? or only blogs, I have one of those as well! Cute stuff. Love the new design for my favorite things.
