Designing sustainable and inclusive playgrounds for and with children with ASD
In episode 2, we talk to researchers from ASD Publics about how to design sustainable and inclusive play areas for and with children with ASD and their families.
We spoke to researchers and architects Blanca Calvo Boixet and Raquel Colacios Parra based in Barcelona, Spain, about ASD Publics. The project has created new tools and methods for urban planning professionals to design sustainable and inclusive play areas for and with children with ASD and their families.
The ASD Publics: Activating Spaces for Neurodiversity project reimagines and transforms playgrounds in cities to provide design guidelines to increase the potential for inclusive play and nature-based solutions in public spaces and can be implemented in other cities or countries.
ASD Publics is one of the fourteen projects that were selected as part of the EIT Community New European Bauhaus initiative.
This episode was presented by Anne-Sophie Garrigou and produced by Bárbara Mendes-Jorge.
