Cornelia Hahn Oberlander on Pedagogical Playgrounds

Cornelia Hahn Oberlander

Cornelia Hahn Oberlander on Pedagogical Playgrounds is a curated selection of writings by the landscape architect dedicated to children’s right to play in urban environments. This volume assembles key texts from the 1960s and 1970s from the CCA collection where Hahn Oberlander urges city planners and developers to recognize playgrounds as important sites for childhood development and to include them in new construction. She emphasizes the social benefits that free play and independent discovery create, and she provides practical proposals for the formulation of new playgrounds.
