Extraordinary Playscapes examines the art, history, science and importance of play, while telling the story behind some of the most incredible play spaces in the world.

Featuring international playgrounds, drawings, sketches, videos and playable installations, Extraordinary Playscapes examines the importance of play and the latest thinking in playground design.
