SALT's team was a finalist for an international design competition with the submission of the Neighborhood PlayBook. Neighborhood PlayBook unearths the potential for the Blanche Nixon library to evolve into a flexible, shared public landscape that gathers, protects and nurtures the surrounding community. Using elements of scale, repetition and surprise, our team offers a design strategy that integrates play and learning into outdoor, civic space. Three Primary Pieces - the Hex block, a Storyboard and the Raindrop - are used to shape and animate space, and to create multiple journeys through the site . As a tactical Playbook, these strategies can be applied to similar urban sites with fundamental neighborhood institutions where play, civic engagement and multi-generational use are encouraged and activated through thoughtful, community-minded design. Competition hosted by Delaware Valley Association for the Education of Young Children (DVAEYC) and Community Design Collaborative (CDC)
