Synapse (Educational Kids' Playground) by chenchi lin
2016 - 2017, Golden A' Interior Space and Exhibition Design Award Winner
Inspiration
Human brain grows fast in the age of 0~7 years old, and the SYNAPSE is the key of the development. Synapses are essential to neuronal function: neurons are cells that are specialized to pass signals to individual target cells, and synapses are the means by which they do so. So, for this playground, we generated the idea not only for playing but also learning and developing to children. The Synapse is exactly the concept of the design.
Creativity
There is a place which offers children to learning by playing inside. It is a playground for kids in a hotel. It is designed for families’ stay in the hotel especially with children. However, since the place is quite nice for families with children, why don’t open to the neighbors which is nearby the hotel. So, it is not only a kids’ playground of the hotel, but also a family commutation center to the area.
Design Challenges
chenchi lin did not encounter any design challenges while designing the award winning Synapse Educational Kids' Playground.
Production Technology
To the space forming, using the main concept of neuronal & synapse shape to transform into the space. And different playing sections/areas look like the neuron that connect with isles which are reflect to the function of synapse. For children brain and sense developing, to design different levels of ground which can develop the visual and environmental response to the layers of things, and the different size of holes and hidden space design can develop the potential abilities of discovery. A cozy atmosphere permeates as the construction is mainly made by natural pine plywood.
