Playtime
Originally uploaded by Jane Dallaway
Two students from Central Saint Martins did half-length presentations, and the second of these was Bruno Taylor on play.

One of his statements was along the lines that "71% of adults used to play outside when they were young, only 21% of children do now". He also showed some photographs of areas that had been "vandalised" by young people playing on objects that looked like they should have been designed for play, in an area with no real play facilities.

He'd installed a swing into a bus stop to enable play in that environment which looks like a fun idea.
