The Cass Architecture Studio 4 has been considering how play can shape the public realm in London. To play is to act free of convention and constraint and we are exploring how the pluralism and ambiguity inherent in the phenomenon of play can help us define territories for this magical and ingenuous spirit to inhabit and find its place in the city.
Whilst the manifold connotations of play encompass the innocence and intuition of children exploring the world to the social and cultural significance of sport, games and performance, for participants and spectators alike, play is a search for identity.
The Cass will present and consult new installations that will be prototyped by Architecture Studio 4 and installed on Aldgate Square. The proposal for frame structures and cast components that provide a setting for specific games and non-prescriptive play will be described and tested at the public opening of Aldgate Square, the City of London's the new public space in Aldgate.
