Playtime Resumes

"Early in his career, New York architect Richard Dattner turned his attention to playgrounds, envisioning more adventurous spaces for children to climb and explore. One of his boldest designs, a set of colorful geometric structures called PlayCubes, became a common sight in the late 1960s in urban parks. However, after falling out of use because of cost and safety concerns, the cubes are back, with an updated design and Playworld as their manufacturer."
