Environmental Works provided complete architectural services to replace an existing playground. The playground included a new upper and lower play area with landscaping, sand, and sculptural architectural forms all woven into the play experience.
The colors, materials, scale and forms are specific to children and contrast the playground elements with the historic market buildings. The design presents play in the spirit of the market’s crafts, produce and street performances. It is part of the many displays of exuberance that occur daily in the Pike Place Market.
