Time to play outside

leave a comment »

I’ve been reading Last Child in the Woods: Saving our children from nature deficit disorder which makes the public artwork by Bruno Taylor in London all the more poignant. The artist says this about the project:

71% of adults used to play on the streets when they were young. 21% of children do so now. Are we designing children and play out of the public realm?
