OurTree is a concept where the goal is to connect the kids to the playground and encourage outdoor activities. The play structure is akin to the jungle gyms present in most playgrounds in Sweden. This large-scale structure has many entrances through ladders and branches all over the playground, and exits that are slides, small rope ladders or stairs. The playground is designed to feel the presence of the kids and sustain its energy from their activity.
The electricity generated from their activity, will power colourful light shows that attempts to keep the kids playing and bright up the short and dark winter days of Sweden.
The children are interacting with the playground by playing their traditional games and being present. When OurTree is ignored, it will start light show that will be visible from the apartments, which will serve as an invitation for the kids.
