Apartamento magazine issue #04 launches this week and includes Kinder: An Everyday Life Kids Supplement. Curated by me, with a coloring book by Andy Rementer, furniture-making workshop with Jordi Ferreiro, an interview with Enzo Mari, and Ye Rin Mok's photos of the things Geoff McFetridge made for/with his daughter Frances.
The Learning Community Playground
At The Learning Community, a charter school in Central Falls, Rhode Island, students spent recess on an old parking lot until a fourth grader wrote to Lowe's asking for help. They sent $110,000. The new playground was designed by Laurencia Strauss... as "part playground, part park, part sculpture" to provide space for both active play and quiet reflection.
