Barbara Kaucky from Erect Architecture talks about their work with playgrounds around the London area, creating places for self direct playing and learning. They decided to create this project because children today are already suffering from the effects of physical inactivity. Therefore, they want to increase the awareness of active playing and how this could benefit the lives of the children in a long term.
