Children and city skin
It has been reported that there are more than 400 child-friendly cities around the world; however, none of them are in China.
In China, the relationship between children, city and nature is not amicable. According to statistics, on average, every day 150 children in China die of accidental injury. On the one hand, there are not a lot of good places for children to play or do activities. On the other hand, Children will be scared when they encounter natural elements, such as grass and insects.
The city is not perfect, but we cannot get away from it. The city needs to get a new “skin”. It is a living interface used for communication between children, city and nature. “City skin” is just a medium in the city for children’s games. It can provide a chance for city children to come back to nature.
In this project, I try to explore products through the concept of system design, modular design and children education. And use this medium skin show the new relationship and communication experience between children, city and nature.
