Run to The Sun is an elegant playground object that resembles a sculpture nestled into the ground. Created for play for children in the elementary age, this playground object will cater to the playful desires of all kids.
The design process was based off of children's movement. Through analysis and experience, that is running around, running in, and running through objects. Which led to the idea of creating individual "ribs" aligned in a linear form. Though it does appear linear, the interior produces curved movement as the kid runs through. The facade of the playground object undulates in a curved surface resembling the function of the interior space.
This playground object combines architectural elements within play generating a beautifully crafted state of the art structure for children.
