Design & Play Kickstarter Campaign Launches May 31 at Midnight


We’re excited to announce an upcoming Kickstarter campaign to support Design & Play, a book about design and the importance of outdoor play featuring the amazing content from our Extraordinary Playscapes exhibition.

After 3 years of research, and installations in Boston and Portland, the exhibition is now on-view at the San Francisco Public Library — complete with playscape design case studies from around the world, the history of outdoor playground design, the science of play, and more. Thousands have enjoyed the exhibit, and the number one question we hear is, “Is there a book?”

We’ve been quietly working on Design & Play as a print resource to inspire the next generation of outdoor play environments. And now we need your help!

Our 30-day Kickstarter campaign launches on May 31 at midnight. We hope you’ll be among the first to back the project on day one. The better we do on day one the more likely Kickstarter will feature our project and we can get the book to more people. In addition to supporting the project, we hope you’ll share the project with your friends and colleagues as well!

Stay tuned for the official launch: on May 31 at midnight we’ll update this page with a link to our video and the various ways to back the project to get the Design & Play book.

Thank you!

Executive Director
