The Brutalist Playground


This summer, RIBA’s The Brutalist Playground will be open to the public as part of the London Festival of Architecture.

Designed as both a sculpture and an architectural installation, this immersive work of art is part of a new commission by the Turner Prize, architecture collective Assemble, and artist Simon Terrill.

The artists are inspired by the post-war playgrounds that now lie abandoned in parts of London like Pimlico and Paddington, images of which will be projected onto The Brutalist Playground’s concrete walls.

Assemble said: “the challenge of reconstructing elements of now forgotten Brutalist play structures within the RIBA gallery is an exciting opportunity for us to explore contemporary issues surrounding play, by looking at the often surreal objects from the past”.
