The Playground Project

Between 1950 and 1980 the playground was a creative laboratory. In the cities of the Global North, innovative, insane and exciting projects emerged: Landscape architects, artists, activists and citizens wanted to provide children with the best place for play and try out a new approach to community and city at the same time.

The DAM for kids and young people

Architecture is not self-explanatory. The significance of architecture merits interpretation and comment. Be it searching for traces in the urban space, a journey through time in the permanent exhibition “From primitive hut to sky-scraper”, or as a master builder on the LEGO building site — the aim of the museum’s educational events is to help people discover the world that’s on the doorstep, finetune their (aesthetic) perception and understand the language of architecture.
