Playful edges at the Lackenbach Arboretum, Austria, 3.0 Landscape Architects


Waaay back in the blog's history I did a post about utilizing the edge of a playground as a track for high-energy runners...taking what is essentially a border and making it a functional part of the playground space.   This intriguing edge--fun topography, lit from beneath---surrounds an aboretum, not a playground (though those grasses are incredibly playful!)  but should inspire more useful, purposeful, playful 'edges'.  Why waste what could be playable space?  Have you seen any intriguing edge strategies?
