Playground playhouse

Play house for children

As a homo ludens optima forma a child declares the house a toy and living a game. domestic elements are repeatedly given a new role in new adventures, whereby scale and abstraction levels play no role whatsoever. This mental model, in which living is shaped through the eyes of children, stimulates the metaphorical use of the parental home. The model is largely assembled from life size home, garden and kitchenware, whereby some elements in the context of the new scale have acquired new significance.
