Come and play the brutalist way! Bring the whole family to contemplate the optimism and new perspectives on play that brutalism brought with it. Children (and their grown-ups) can try out the exhibits and you can draw your own conclusions.
The exhibition, The Brutalist Playground, is part architectural installation, part playground and raises questions around design for play, from both historic and contemporary perspectives. There’s also a new installation as part of the playground, from Turner Prize-winning artists Assemble and Simon Terrill, who are creating a Jeep – a vehicle beloved by brutalist architects, The Smithsons.
Families are welcomed to the café and terrace, where you can buy a range of delicious sandwiches, salads, snacks and cakes.
