ART | @RockThatMuseumKid, YEAH!

Sometimes we want to show you some really interesting Instagram accounts. @RockThatMuseumKid is an account that joins two of our great passions, kids and fine arts. It is curated by Mille Maria, a 32 years old mum who lives in Copenhagen, Denmark.

In his own words, the content of the account “It’s all about kids and art. I believe in exposing children to art at an early age and teach them that going to the museum can be fun.”

And if we look at the photographs shown at Instagram, it is really true.

AN ATYPICAL PLAYGROUND

Lions Park Playscape is a great maze build with 55-gallon galvanized drums. Within that environment, a variety of running, hiding, jumping, climbing, and other exploratory experiences exist to create opportunities for physical activity; however undulating ground surfaces, sound tubes, and sensory rooms are hidden throughout the maze to heighten discovery and create opportunities for mental stimulation and imagination.

Rural Studio is an off-campus design-build program of Auburn University. The program, established in 1993, gives architecture students a more hands-on educational experience whilst assisting an underserved population in West Alabama’s Black Belt region.

ORGANIC CUBE, EPHEMERAL ARCHITECTURE FOR KIDS AND ADULTS

During the 2009 Copenhagen International Wood Festival, Søren Korsgaard and Daniel Nielsen, designed this little pavilion named ORGANIC CUBE. It was made with 1000 meters of 45x45mm pine laths.

The structure was physically static, yet changeable through the viewer and the sun’s position that through the day opened and closed for the light to pass. The structure could both be seen as a cube and an organic form, depending on light and angle (time and place) the lines from the two modes interfered and one of the two forms dominate.

A good small building to visit, walk through or even climb to the top.

I WANT IT, I WANT IT, I WANT THIS PLAYHOUSE!

Do you think it is possible to join a climbing net, a trap door with a ladder, a curved stainless steel slide and some fire poles in just one house? And do you think it is possible to join all of this in just one playhouse?

The Manhattan studio Sharon Davis Design created this incredible playhouse on an old farmstead in Garrison, offering views over New York’s Hudson River Valley. We could even call it a treehouse, for the elevated position amongst a group of trees, but its fixed to the ground by four metal poles. Read more

A “CHRYSALIS-LIKE” SERPENTINE PAVILION

Every year the same. At this time, we are all waiting for a new Serpentine Pavilion. Like any good film, a few months before always appear an spoiler, an image or a model of the project. Now, a week before the opening, we can see some construction images.

This year’s Pavilion is a SELGASCANO project, a spanish team established in Madrid and formed by José Selgas and Lucía Cano. It is a metallic structure wrapped in strips and sheets of fluorine coloured plastic that filters the daylight.

It is not a building for kids, but it is a building that kids will enjoy very much.
