Scott Carver and Hoyne have partnered with Property NSW, who share a passion for connecting people and place, to locate the Play Pod at the southern end of the Goods Line for the next nine days.
‘The Play Pod’, a life-sized Rubik’s Cube of outdoor activation, is the brainchild and original concept of a team of architects, urbanists and creatives, inspired by their collective passion for places that inspire people every day, and prompted by the theme of this year’s Sydney Design Festival – ‘Call to Action’.
Low-cost, flexible and portable, the Play Pod is a modular, adaptable structure that can be manipulated to suit the needs of users, and easily relocated to activate passive and vacant areas. On the surface it’s all fun and games, however the Play Pod promotes ‘play with purpose’; designed to increase the social value of a space by providing an adaptable platform for use, day and night.
