Synthesis of the case study

Grevelingenveld, known locally as Deltaplantsoen, is a neighbourhood square in Rivierenbuurt, The Hague. The design of the 8.100m2 space links carefully with the development of a new neighbourhood school which faces onto the square. The central natural playground is a space where children are free to construct and destruct their own play spaces from natural materials and fast growing plants such as willow and reeds. Bringing a natural playscape like this into the heart of the neighbourhood will increase the daily contact of children with with nature, an important factor for a healthy childhood and an experience that is missing from many urban neighbourhoods.
