Play Object

Augustus Saint Gaudens Children's Play Object, East 19th Street, New York, NY

Using the ideas of knit and crochet line construction and tensile structures from the Lines project, this play object is designed to be a malleable space(s). There are three areas--below grade (shown in blue), inside structure, and above structure--which are all shaped by the users via tension cabling and posts. Some areas, such as the entrance and exit points, and the shell structure of passageways, are of a fixed weave construction, and are indicated in dark grey.
