In order to light the country up, the award-winning architect Alejandro Aravena was invited to help construct an open space for the children of Santiago, Chile in order to celebrate the 2012 Bicentennial.
Mr. Aravena, along with is talented design team at Elemental, an Architecture firm he founded, exposed their creative minds by designing a 10 acre playground that included tree houses, swings, water forests and an amazing 60 toboggan cascade right alongside the unused hill, creating an all-in-one adventure for the kids. Aravena went on to say:
The proposal uses the difficulties of the terrain to solve a classic dilemma of children’s games: make them either safe or entertaining? The hillside slope allowed us to reach enough height to make them fun, without being a threat to children’s safety. Furthermore, the perimeter fence of the park is a play area of 310 m.
