Commissioned by DARB 1718, we initiated and organized this workshop to create play elements out of old tyres, we gathered a group of 25 volunteers and together with many many children from the local community we designed and constructed several playlements in public space. The weekends were a big success, we booked good reults and the children played happily on the new elements. Though the sustainability was not as we hoped.... lessons learned from this workshop will be used in the following workshop to create public space to play in Cairo. To be continued.... this was just the start...!
