Playground Design Project with RGU

Danestone Primary are proud to announce that they are involved in a new project with  the students from RGU. On Wednesday 6th February, pupils and students got together to start making plans for our playground. The plan is for the pupils to share their ideas for a new playground design with the students and then the students to go away and make a range of designs. The pupils will then get the opportunity to choose their favourite designs.

 

It was an exciting morning with the pupils sharing their ideas with the students and then taking the students for a walk around our existing playground. We are very excited to see the ideas they come up with.

The students will be back on Open day, Wednesday 6th March to continue working with the pupils. Parents are invited to join the groups and find out more about the plans for our playground.

 

Report from the RGU students

Danestone Primary School and Scott Sutherland School of Architecture Stage 3 students are in a partnership to design and visualize ‘place-making’ for the school playground. The community engagement allows hands-on experience students gain through the module ‘Cities and Contemporary Architecture’, as part of the ‘Community as an Extended Class Room’ learning tools. Students-Pupils partnership project will be showcased on 17 April in Danestone Primary School after a semester-long exercise using collaborative urban design and placemaking methods. #communityengagement #visualization #urbandesign #partnerships #architecture #playgrounds #placemaking
