Design Excellence in Play

Placeholder alt text

Great design looks simple. Getting there not so much.

What role does good design play in society? How do you know it when you see it? What goes into creating it? Is excellence ever easy? Through these questions and examples from around the world, we will examine global trends and their impacts on designing impactful playground environments today. Discussions will also focus on the opportunities for stronger collaboration between playground designers and park planners.

We are authorized to provide .1 CEUs, 1 LUs and 1 PDHs, which meet Health, Safety and Welfare credits. We also offer AIA credit including nano units. After this 60-minute Learning Academy session, you’ll have an understanding of the following learning objectives:

  • How great design in everyday life directly impacts playground environment design and maximizes community participation.
  • How great design influences great playground design—from new ideas to new materials, bringing design aesthetic to great collaboration to play environments.
  • Global design trends and how to integrate them into play environments.
