A Hurra Hurra podcast special in cooperation with the Bauhaus Study Rooms 2020: In this episode Burg-student Verena Zimmermann talks with Denisa Kollarová about her ongoing research project about playgrounds in Amsterdam. With a special focus on Aldo van Eycks approach on designing playgrounds, Kollarová gives a historical insight of van Eycks revolutionary way of designing them in the 50’s and 60’ in Amsterdam. Why are they better than the ones we see mainly nowadays? In this podcast, Denisa Kollarová shows us — citizens, parents, designers, architects, city decision makers — the importance of a high quality playground.
