Description
Matthew Urbanski will describe his approach to highlighting delight as a design imperative and how this translates into creating memorable environments for play. The core impulse behind garden-making is the pursuit of delight. Similarly, landscapes of play exist solely to give children delight through the fundamental human activity we call play. Like delight, play takes many forms, as will be illustrated in the range of projects discussed.
