Hard as Nails Playground Design

Karen’s last post encouraged me to rummage through my pics folder and find this shot of a piece of playground equipment that I first saw out of the corner of my eye a few weeks ago as I was blasting through the village of Lunow on my carbon fiber racing bike. It struck me for its severity and elegance, suggesting the somewhat sadistic games that its form might give cause to: “I see you, you see me” segueing into reenactments of medieval public humiliation sessions.
