Commission: Playground equipment for children in the age 1-12, on a schoolyard that is also accessible to the public.

The play modules are a series of undulating concrete elements, that have been put together to form an elongated play area. Many shapes are possible with just 2 types of curved elements. The children are not instructed as to how they must play; the zone offers possibilities to sit and lie, and entices the imagination to play.
