Riverside playground / Noguchi

Photos from a cast bronze (!) model, proposal for a playground area in the Riverside Park, New York City, by the master of sculptural landscape Isamu Noguchi (1094-1988) in collaboration with architect Louis Kahn (1901-1974). The architects had to redesign five times this playground from 1961 to 1966, but the project was finally cancelled due to neighborhood opposition.

pix found @ playscapes.
