About Designing Playful Cities:

If Atlanta is to be a great city in which to live, designing great places for children to play must become a top priority. MODA’s upcoming exhibition, Designing Playful Cities, will take visitors through an engaging and often interactive exhibit that will clearly lay out the important role of play in the health of all children and adults. The exhibit will present a strong case for designing more and more urban play environments as cities become more densely populated.

Through interactive installations, experiences, and graphics, visitors will learn about successful play spaces around the world and what role design has had in their success. It will engage the visitor to look for new solutions to bringing play to our ever growing city. This is not design for design’s sake. This is design for the sake of a greater tomorrow, so the exhibition will look at what children — the “end users” — want from play spaces and how we might design to meet those needs in Atlanta and beyond.
