Here’s what happens when architects design a playground


March 4th, 2015


Much like an ever changing and expanding forest, the aptly named “Forest Loops” project is a highly sculptural playground by Suppose Design Office that grows and evolves, depending on the need.


As the firm states, Forest Loops “lies in between the definition of complete and incomplete.”

They add, “The majority of existing architecture projects show a sense of completion once the building is completed. [Here] we tried to expand the possibilities of usage and interactions that can connect with visitors and residents.”


For one, simply placing a net in the structure turns it into a ‘play land’ for kids. The studio also says that a tree house can be erected within the structure, transforming it into a liveable space.
