Zitate aus " Play and Interplay"
"Interplay between the object and the child makes his total world - play. He exploits the vitality of his environment and draws upon his imagination to create his world." (p. 25)
"Imitate nature; extrapolate from the natural form; create a form that provides the option to slide, climb, traverse, or perch." (p. 51)
"Scale defines graduated levels of challenge and territory... When design is scaled to only one group, it excludes others by intimation and activity." (p. 76)
"Nature and play - reflection shadow, wind, sounds - are the interplays between nature and the child. The ecology of the city is rich in play and learning value. " (p.83)
"Construction play is the precursor of a new concept in playground design. The playground as we know it will ultimately become obsolete, and children will construct their own play environments. Construction play is a universal pastime for every age group; it is the unifying link between education and recreation." (p. 89)
"Interplay is the new pattern. Both young and old gain from interaction. A recognition of interplay among people, places, facilities and institutions is essential to meaningful approach to recreation. We waste our resources through fragmentation." (p. 145)
