Urban Playroom
Urban city tends to give people a dynamic yet hectic routine life, and given the scarce availability of public space, the project explores if a playroom can be created not only for the kids but for all city dwellers as a shelter of inspiration and relaxation. Collaborated with HKTDC, a group of Hong Kong young designers, using "Urban Playroom" as a theme, create an innovative set of playful games and installations to be presented in the Inspiration Hall. Integrating design, creativity and city life, the Urban Playroom should not be missed!
