Playgrounds are urban outdoor spaces specifically designed for children, but even playgrounds are often designed without considering the youngest. The Istanbul95 project invites public administrators, policy makers, designers and citizens to look at the city from a height of 95 cm - from the eye-level of a 3-year-old child.
As a part of Istanbul95, this book focuses on playgrounds and asks questions in accordance with the needs of 0-3-year-olds and their caregivers. When searching for answers, instead of reaching definitive conclusions, it provides principles and suggestions that hope to inspire public administrators, policy makers, designers and citizens to explore new and creative ideas.
Şehirde Oyun is a compilation of the views of world-renowned experts, some of whom were guests at our Urban Playspaces Conference.
