• PlayCubes by Richard Dattner Playworld playworld.com Playworld, a designer and manufacturer of commercial playground equipment for parks, schools, and urban landscapes, has partnered with New York City-based architect Richard Dattner, FAIA, to reintroduce an iconic design of his from the 1960s. Called PlayCubes, the sculptural forms and distinctive geometric shapes encourage exploration and open-ended play for children. The cubes and slide are made of LLDPE (linear low-density polyethylene) plastic with aluminum floor casting and stainless steel hardware. The first installation, shown here, is at Boston’s Chinatown Park on the Rose Kennedy Greenway.

These new outdoor furnishings can help create distinctive public landscapes that are more practical, comfortable, and memorable.
