Detail of assembled parts

These wood play structures were designed to enable parents and teachers with limited carpentry skills to pre-fabricate and/or assemble intimate, versatile spaces for small children.

The system proved to be a bit cumbersome and was replaced after a few years, but it did provide an inexpensive alternative to commercial equipment that parents in day care and pre-school settings could build themselves as part of a community.
