Imagination Playground featured in "Fast Company"

"Fast Company" magazine featured a neat article about Imagination Playground™ and David Rockwell this month! Here's a snippet:

David Rockwell stumbled upon his idea for a new kind of public playground after ordering a fancy art desk for his two children. "It had all these compartments, and I was very excited about it," the designer explains. "When I got home, the kids were in the hall in the cardboard box with the foam pellets. They had been playing there all day."

That led Rockwell to set out, pro bono, to develop a playground that promotes free play rather than the jungle gyms and swing sets that emphasize motor skills.
