Outdoor play is bookended by: on the one hand, over-zealous Health and Safety local authority administration and on the other hand, juvenile delinquency that turns playgrounds into anti-social spaces…

An artificial play tree for Lambeth in response to ‘Do Not Climb The Trees’… the next tree is 8m high and is one of a 10-tree habitable forest.
Trees are the canvas of carving.
Many parks have signage asking children ‘DO NOT PLAY ON TREES’. This project thus sought to give children an experience of tree climbing by making an artificial Play Tree that encouraged climbing. Constructed from a single Douglas Fir log, the tree itself is a feat of structural engineering due to the use of specific timber details drawn from lumberjack techniques.
