“Making Amazing Places”, Connected – How do you know?, level 2, January 2014

10 January 2014

Making Amazing Places slide.

When is a slide not just a slide? When it’s also the neck of a giraffe? This is just one of the exciting ideas Christchurch students came up with when entering the BNZ competition to design the best playground in the world for the central city rebuild. The students' entry could be modelled in any format they liked – a 3D model, a poster, a DVD, a storyboard, a website – in fact any format they wanted to use.
