The Fun Rings are part of the Play Ribbons series that the office has developed and prototyped during a long process of research and development of play routes, playful circuits of events, for users of different ages and in different stages of physical & mental development. The Fun Rings encourage playful learning in a safe but challenging learning environment, fostering the development of physical, social, communicative and collaborative skills.
This type of learning has been found to be very effective because apart from promoting a state of low anxiety, it provides opportunities for completely new experiences and active engagement.
This circle is thought for young adults and middle age people ranging from 24 to 65 years old. We call this group “The Chilled”. This is essentially a group age where their playground is a space for hanging out, relaxing and socializing. Functional facilities like strollers parking or pet leashing areas, as well as shading structures for protection over rainy or very hot days are required to create comfortable seating arrangements.
Therefore, this ring is essentially a platform for social interactions that we have called the “Lounge Circle”
The Lounge Circle is composed by different seating arrangements and positions that foster a wide range of interactions among users. There are lounge seats for chilling, table seats for lunch or snacks, communal swings and hammocks for resting. They are arranged in groups, individual or sometimes peer to peer, in order to foster communication depending on the interaction desired.
The colors, play features and details of this project can be customized depending on the needs of the client and conditions of the site. The modifications will be done upon request.
