The Play Ground design studio, in collaboration with Ben Clark Design and Barney Ibbotson Illustration, recently has launched a design competition called PLAYHOUSE, open to all creatives including students in the UK and abroad, asking them to design something that will enable people to play at home during lockdown.
Play is an essential part of all our lives, whether child or adult. Be it playing sports, a board game or simply sharing jokes with friends, play is just as important to adults as building a den or playing dress-up is to a child.
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has left many of us having to spend extended periods of time at home in lockdown, restricting the opportunity to socialise and play in ways that we are used to. How can we use creativity to encourage play in these unique times?
Your design could make an existing everyday activity playful, provide a break from work, or make work more fun. It could recreate some form of existing outdoor play inside the house, create a whole new type of game, or do something entirely different to create play!
It could be for adults or children, and enable a personto play alone, with their family or housemates, or even with their neighbours or friends far away.
Your design should only use objects commonly foundin the house, garden or shed in its constructionor as props. It could make play inside or outside thehouse (in the garden) or even on the house itself!
The design only needs to hypothetically work. Humour, whimsy and innovation are all encouraged!
◉ One or two A3 sheets (landscape or portrait) explaining your design. Your files should be saved as a high resolution (300dpi) PDF (Max 25MB) and should show an image or set of images of your design in use. This could be an illustration, a 2D/3D technical drawing, a photo of a model, an animation, a mix of these, or anything in between! You may want to add annotations, dimensions, construction information, or zoom in on parts of your idea to help organiser understand how it might work. The more detail, the better.
◉ In addition to your sheets please include with your submission:
➜ The name of your design. Make it snappy!
➜ 300 words explaining your design.
➜ A kit list of objects/materials needed to create your design.
