Architecture + Design Scotland have commissioned education and design experts to create a short learning note for our web series; “Better briefing for education benefit” to support and expand on the learning points captured from the world café session at the Scottish government schools estate conference, November 2013
Each piece responds to a particular Issue raised from the world café session, capturing knowledge, opinion and experiences and highlighting how these lessons can be transferable for future scenarios.
The fourth publication of the series, produced by Liane Bauer and Marion Preez, of Urban Pioneers, addresses the question,
“why and for what do we provide outdoor learning and play spaces?”
The learning note stresses that it is time for commitment and appreciation for the value of play and courage to take some risks and to break with the current quick fixes, highlighting some examples of simple and successful playground installations.
