CARBON NEUTRAL PLAYGROUND
North America, Europe
What does a carbon neutral playground look like? Is it upcycled material waste? Is it using locally-sourced materials? Is it changing maufacturing processes?
The goal of this project is to facilitate a meaningful design response to the climate crisis by developing a framework that explores sourcing, manufacturing, transportation, construction, maintenance, and life cycle of a carbon neutral playground. This exploration will also assess the environmental impact of the playground industry and set best practices for carbon neutral playgrounds by developing sustainability certifications.
This project is a part of the Green New Deal Superstudio.
To be completed Summer 2021
