Public art for kids by Toshiko Horiuchi-MacAdam


The design includes all kinds of vibrantly colored nets, swings, cushions, and pockets for children to play on and explore.

The artist created this playground where children can interact with her art.

Horiuchi-MacAdam believes in bringing joy and laughter to children through these creative projects. She finds great pleasure in watching the soft fabric transform and come alive as the children stretch, climb, and swing on the materials. Her most treasured moments are hearing what she describes as the "undisguised delight of children exploring a new play space."

This particular playspace ‘Rainbow Net’ can be found in the National Park in Sapporo and was produced in close collaboration with structural engineers TIS & Partners and landscape architects Takano Landscape Planning.
