Toshiko Horiuchi-MacAdam Playgrounds

Japanese crochet artistsToshiko Horiuchi-MacAdam and her structures that act as both art and playgrounds.

Toshiko’s installation were once mistaken by children for a playground, and suddenly found new life. The structures are strong utilizing specially constructed net which is  resilient and responsive to the slightest movement. Their innovative design allows tension to be maintained as the fibre stretches thereby enabling children to play safely.  

Here is my selection for today.
