NY - Domino Park
Video features the Domino Park playground inspired by artist Mark Reigelman’s interpretation of the historic Domino Sugar Factory, Landscape Structures designed it into playable reality. An intricate web of belting, nets and climbers lets kids scramble from the sugar shack up to the masher tower and over to the centrifuge. Stainless-steel slides look just like industrial pipes. Casts of original factory valves are scattered throughout. And some of the wood was reclaimed from the original sugar shack, giving kids a tactile connection to history.
