Do it for the Kids: How Urban Design is Encouraging Active Play and Social Interaction
What can a videogame teach us about the way we plan our cities? How might developing a play park help make for safer spaces for both children and adults? And do grown-ups really know best? In this episode, we speak to former Commissioner of Parks and Rec of Philadelphia — Kathryn Ott Lovell, about the iconic playstreets programme that has been happening in the city for half a century, and James Delaney Chair of the Board at Block by Block to learn how the NGO is designing public spaces across the global south through the help of Minecraft and children. Plus TOPOSOPHY’s takeaways on the things city officials must consider when bringing play into their urban planning.
