Course Description:

By diving into 3 case studies of different parks, attendees will be able to understand how different concrete finish and color techniques helped bring the designers’ visions to reality. Attendees will gain an understanding of the different color and finish options for concrete applicable to playgrounds and parks. We will explore horizontal and vertical decorative concrete elements in the 3 different parks, talk about the design process of each as well as the construction techniques.  We will explore a playful park and playground, a natural playground and a community open space park to show the variety available in different applications.
