WIP project 2022

Islington is densely populated and many children live in poor overcrowded families, thus more play space is being called for. There are already many places to play in the community, and large playgrounds are only a small part of them. The real problem is that people, especially kids, don't know about these places and how playable they are.

So we designed Play@, a game-driven service that can be practised by play organizations to unlock playable places, bridge different players in the community, and establish a playground-centred network. In layman's terms, it is a toolkit that can be used by play organizations to transform real communities into games, which will map out all the playable spaces in the community and highlight the uniqueness of each place.
