Designing for Play

Front Cover
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2011 - Social Science - 250 pages
Based on 30 years' experience as a specialist play area designer, Barbara Hendricks details a radically new approach, applying cutting-edge thinking from child development and child psychology to find innovative design solutions, challenging the established notions of play provision. This book provides designers with an exploration of, and guide to, designing from a 'child's eye' view of the world. This second edition has added discussion about new ideas for play area designs and what has not worked in the past decade.--[book cover]
