Rockefeller University Children’s Playground

Description: Children’s Playground
Client: Rockefeller University Children’s School, 64th St./York Ave., Manhattan, NY
Designer: Eric Gerdes


Our children are growing faster and learning more than at any stage in life. We need to meet the demands of this growth. This playground is a direct reflection of this school; it is an extension of the classroom, an integral part of the whole learning process. By creating a stimulating environment, the child is free to discover, to create, to fantasize, to explore and to compete and most importantly to think (decision making). This playground is designed to meet most of these needs. These activities and experiences prepare them for the future years.
