Public Playground on Mullerpier
The design for a school, sport and public square is a pilot project, resulting from a research into the potential of playgrounds for the public domain in 2007. It is a schoolyard for the primary school nearby, as well a public square. In the surroundings, there are several other functions, such as a home for elderly people, a business centre, a theatre and housing. There is a sports square where the older children can play more competitive games, and a smaller square where all children, but especially the younger ones, can play safely in a diverse way. Around the square is a green hedge, which together with the green rubber ground with a pattern of leaves, relates to the theme of 'a secret garden'. More green, shelter and means to play is what the square offers today. The final result challenges children to play in different ways, while adults are invited to use the square as an outdoor accommodation in their neighbourhood.
