Link 17 Apr playscapes: The Park for Playing and Thinking, Contrafile and Basurama, Sao Paulo Brasil»

The ever-playful Basurama (whose Ghost Train Park in Lima has been previously featured on the blog) collaborated with Brazilian collective Contrafilé and other partners to create a park in which to both play AND think in a Sao Paulo favela.  The community, and especially its children, were deeply engaged in both planning and construction.
