Parque para niños en Takino Hillside Park / Children's Playground in Takino Hillside Park



Localización / Location: Sapporo Hokkaido, Japón (2000)
Diseño / Design: Takano Landscape Planning (http://www.tlp.co.jp)

El objetivo de este proyecto ha sido crear un lugar en la naturaleza en el que los niños puedan jugar libremente. Los niños de hoy en día tienen menos experiencia en el entorno natural, y se sienten perdidos cuando juegan en el bosque por primera vez. Para enseñarles a jugar en el medio natural poco a poco, se dispusieron cinco fases. La primera zona se diseñó para liberar a los niños de sus experiencias cotidianas, y despertar sus sentidos antes de entrar en el bosque.
El tema básico para esta área fueron los nidos de diferentes seres vivos. Se desarrollaron para provocar la aventura y la creatividad, y en tamaños enormes para que los niños pudieran correr alrededor teniendo la sensación de que se habían convertido en pequeños seres vivos. Las formas incluyen hormigueros, termiteros (cuya orgánica volumetría ha sido modelada por ordenador), nidos de pájaros y huevos esponjosos.
La artista textil Macadam Toshiko colaboró en el diseño de la gran red colgante multicolor. 
The aim of this project was to create a place where children can play freely in the natural environment. The idea of the Nature Playground was fundamental. Children today have less experience with the wild environment, and would feel helpless to play in the forest with no previous experience. To adjust them to play in the forest gradually, we have prepared five stages. This area was planned as a first stage playground. The space was designed to release children from their everyday life chores, and awaken their senses before entering the forest.
The basic theme for the playground was nests. Images were inspired from the nests of various living things. They were developed to provoke adventure and creativity, and in super sizes so children can run around feeling as if they have become one of the small living things. Most of the facilities are covered with green and soil to unify with the surroundings. The forms include a tower of ant hives, an ant hive tunnel, the dome of a rainbow nest, the nest of mid-air birds, and fluffy eggs.
The net play tool of the rainbow nest dome was made in collaboration with fabric artist, Toshiko Macadam. Children have the opportunity to experience an artistic environment. Organic forms of ant hives were measured by computer from the model and drawn by using the data measured, then constructed by using the truss wall construction method.
