Design a sustainable playground that motives for sports and games. This was the idea for a competiton by the Richard Krajicek Foundation. Verhoeven | De Ruijter worked together with Mariëlle Kok Landscape Architect BNT and DuneWorks on a strategy for a social and sustainable playground.


The result is a module system. A standard frame forms the basis on which a variety of sports and game elements can be attached or implemented in. The philosophy was that a playground is only used and managed sustainably when it is embraced by the neighbourhood. Not only for children and young people, but by people of all ages. Sports and games start with cooperation.
